The Mayfly (Poem)

The Mayfly

A tranquil scene in sight and sounds
The river and banks where life abounds

The jewelled flash of a Kingfishers wings
And sunlight sparkling in dappled rings

The rippling waters gliding by
Are so tempting to the young Mayfly

A cloud of water sprites who take a chance
And upon these sparkling waters dance

The waters part in a rainbow hued flash
Crystalline droplets falling with a splash

Showers of diamonds from glistening scales
And the hungry trout's leap rarely fails

When his sharp eye is upward glancing
And he catches sight of the Mayfly dancing.
