Dragonflies, libellule

Here is a verse by Jean Ingelow that mentions dragonflies , mosche di drago , libellule , they have a special meaning for me.

Then the green rushes- O so glassy green
The rushes they would whisper, rustle, shake
And forth on floating gauze, no jewelled queen
So rich, the green- eyed. Dragonflies would break
And hover on the flowers - aerial things
With little rainbows flickering on their wings.
