Coleridge, in an opium-enhanced vision, famously saw a damsel with a dulcimer. I'm prepared to accept that dulcimers are difficult to spot nowadays:

but what about damsels?
A damsel is an out-of-date word for a young unmarried female or (to use another very old-fashioned word) maiden. The basic feeling behind the word is that a damsel is delicately beautiful, mysterious, and to be cherished.
Of course I know that nowadays young ladies are strong and independently-minded and equal to absolutely everything and all that, but, I don't know...perhaps it might be a nice to remember from time to time that they're also lovely and to be valued. Possibly even protected, sometimes.
If you cannot spot a damsel (for political reasons, perhaps?) then how about a damsel bug?

They're relations of the bedbugs, but they eat other insects instead of people. Which is sort of a good thing, I suppose, if you're human.
A damselfly is a type of small dragonfly which tends to rest with its winds folded across its back.

Or there are damselfish, which are very beautiful, though I must admit unlikely to be spotted swimming along a High Street near you.

Still, who needs them when you have so many of the human kind around?
Dante Gabriel Rossetti, The Damsel of the Sanct Grael.
Spot the Frippet: damsel. This word comes from the Old French desmoisele, from the Latin domina, mistress.
*I think this is the cocoa damselfish, so called because the bit that's blue in this photograph is sometimes brown.
