Tale of a Spider

Spiders Web 2
Spiders Web 2

A spider visited the house one day,
She wanted me to come out and play.
scampering round in the hall
and up and down the mirrors and walls.

So out of the door I did go
She scampered off fast, as I went slow
and heading for the nearest tree
looking for something for her tea

At first I thought, the fence she’d cleared
but then in an instant – she reappeared
hanging her threads from the nearest tree
it looked like fine embroidery.

And then on a branch, I watched her wait
for something to catch and put on her plate
a swarm of flies through the sky
and towards the middle of the web they did fly

So as I sat, enjoying a treat,
The spider sat central in her web to eat
eating a few bugs, without little haste
and wrapping the rest up so they wouldn’t go to waste!

    What a fun write! I can see every reader understand it perfectly well, since we all have experienced similar situations which you put in verse so well! 🙂
