A Living Flash of Light..

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. 
~ Tennyson
