Dragonfly summer – an inksperiment in blue II

The Dragon-fly – Tennyson

“Today I saw the dragon-fly

Come from the wells where he did lie.
An inner impulse rent the veil
Of his old husk: from head to tail
Came out clear plates of sapphire mail.
He dried his wings: like gauze they grew;
Thro’ crofts and pastures wet with dew
A living flash of light he flew.”image
