All About the Spider

One thing that spiders always love to do Spin their webs of mastery just for you Beauty of their fine, silvery web strings Holding each drop of water in its rings The center holds the granddaddy of all Creator of this masterpiece installed He sits just waiting for the naive bug Then he kills it with his engrossing drug The spider can build this web in one night Some webs are quite the incredible sight Web makes it through many types of weather Even powerful storms could not bother Spider spins all of its webbing just right Web and spider work together with might

    What an amazing creature the spider is. Did you know that a spider will literally bite it's own leg off to distract an approaching predator? Funny how webs are so beautiful to gaze at, when in reality the spider is just hungry for some tasty flies. Beautiful sonnet, Russell!

    Your sonnet my friend, Russell, is more skillfully weaved than the spiders web! I hope, that apart of "visits" it will catch also first prize! Excellent work!7!
