RIP Danny Kirwan. thanks for the music
Dragonfly is an amazing song by Danny.



'Dragonfly" lyrics taken from the 1927 poem by Welsh poet W. H. Davies
who also wrote The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp


Now, when my roses are half buds, half flowers,
And loveliest, the king of flies has come-
It was a fleeting visit, all too brief;
In three short minutes he has seen them all,
And rested, too, upon an apple tree.

There, his round shoulders humped with emeralds,
A gorgeous opal crown set on his head,
And all those shining honours to his breast-
‘My garden is a lovely place’ thought I,
‘But is it worthy of such a guest?’

He rested there, upon the apple leaf-
‘See, see,’ I cried amazed, ‘his opal crown,
And all those emeralds clustered around his head!’
‘His breast, my dear, how lovely was his breast-’
The voice of my Beloved quickly said.

‘See, see his gorgeous crown, that shines
With all those jewels bulging round its rim-’
I cried aloud at night, in broken rest.
Back came the answer quickly, in my dream-
‘His breast, my dear, how lovely was his breast!’

Danny also wrote this, it was the B side to Albatross.

I think Dragonfly is in the Minor Scale and i,m surprised to find out that in Indian raga, the harmonic minor scale is called "Kirwani".
