In the web

A butterfly blissfully floating through
Gets caught in a spider's silky trap
A life and death battle ensues
It struggles as its wings flap

Then the spider moves in for the kill
As the butterfly struggles still
Finally , it escapes from the silky threads
Soaring to freedom as its wings spread
