Sunday Selections

Deep in the sun-searched growths the dragon-fly
Hangs like a blue thread loosened from the sky:
So this winged hour is dropt to us from above.
Oh! clasp we to our hearts, for deathless dower,
This close-companioned inarticulate hour
When twofold silence was the song of love.

-Rossetti, Dante Gabriel


  1. I can't wait for the dragonflies to return! I have so many varieties in my yard! They are so awesome to look at! Come on over to Olde Common Scents and share your gardening and craft tips. Have a great day! Love your blog.

  2. Isn't there something magical about dragonflies? I rarely see them here, but whenever I spot one, it's a special moment. :)


    PS: The German word for dragonfly is Libelle. It's nice, isn't it?

  3. Dragonflies fascinate me too, I really enjoy watching them. We get large numbers of them here.

    What a pretty word for such magnificent little creatures - Libelle.

  4. Dragonflies are one of my favorite...insects? Is that what they're classified as?

    Regardless, I think they're beautiful.
