Miss Spider

lilting miss spider weaves her gossamer web

demure little caterpillar soon will be dead

her evanescent tapestry bedewed in the April Sun

this furtive little nemesis to nearly everyone

ascends upon her plethora of ill fated guests

lilting little miss spider 

she shall take no rest

amid the flora and fauna

an ethereal web of death

where hapless little emmets will take that final breath

    Ha ha! Yep! It came to me after watching with both horror and fascintion a very large arachnid weaving a large web along the office stairs. I'll be reading your poems tonight. :)

    Thank you. I know a spiders gotta eat but I can't help but feel sympathy for the struggling dinner. I'll be reading more of your poems tonight but so far I have enjoyed what I have read.
