Fly, Dragonfly... Fly

Fly,  Dragonfly... Fly

By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I stood there watching the little girl
as she smiled brightly, skipped along her way

I saw her tilt her pretty little head of curls
to look down at a dragonfly that sat perched on a flower

Fly little dragonfly, fly
I heard her little girl voice say

I want to fly with you but, I can only skip and jump
I can't go up in the air like you can

Her face glowed with happiness as it soared off into the air
her eyes twinkled with sunshine lights as she watched

She began to wave her little arms, for a moment I
thought she would fly

up into the sky with that little dragonfly

No, she didn't fly, but... if she could have
this little girl would have soared with her very heart

With that dragonfly to wherever it went
saying... fly, dragonfly... fly!

  1. I can just see that little girl with her arms flapping and she skipping along, to try to fly with the dragaonfly! I wish I could have had a camera on that little girl! Love, Ms. Nancy
