When I was a young girl I was told by my older friend that I should be very careful when I saw a dragonfly in the area because they will take a blade of grass and sew our mouths closed.
For a very long time I was scared to death of, and would run away from Dragonflies, I was told if I spoke they would come sew your mouth shut! Now I love them all kinds big and small. I will let them land on me and just watch them intently. (Love them)
An eccentric woman on our street had mouth surgery once, and told the neighborhood children that the stitches in her lip were from a dragonfly and that dragonflies sew your mouth shut if you let them land on you. I believed this for years.
