- The Weaver Arachene -



                                     A poor little girl from Lydia
                                Earned her life stay with weave
                           She woved the most beautiful carpets
                                     No money or gold she got
                                 but some wool and some food
                    Arachene was a famous and sought after weaver
                    Everyone admired her work, she had a great talent
             Goddess Athena heard about this little girl who was so skilled
                Athena could also weave but not as amazing as Arachene
                      No one should be better than the Goddess Athene
                                  she was angry and very jealous
                    Arachene was forced to take her own life .... suicide
                              Although the Goddess Athene was evil 
                             she regretted slightly in the last second
                             She created little Arachene into a spider
                                      Next time you see a spider
                         send some thoughts to the little girl from Lydia
                                Arachene spins beautiful spider web
                                          in your and my garden

    Hi Anne- Lise, you have weaved a beautiful tapestry on an ancient tale. As always my Friend It Is well written and very Interesting. I got a little hot when the spider came In, me being an arachnophobic . Those ancient God's were like that. This Is a wonderfuly constructed story. You are a most beautiful weaver yourself Anne-Lise as your poems do tell. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE

    I love the story of Arachne. It's very interesting, and reveals the darker aspects of human nature, among them arrogance and disrespect. I believe you've done absolute honor to this ancient tale, and you've weft a beautiful poem, indeed. Wonderful work!

    I will probably always come back being trapped in this web. In any case, the beauty of mythology is that there is not just one truth but many different sets of beliefs. Thank-you for sharing this lovely story.

    So beautiful, Anne Lise. There's nothing as beautiful as a web reflecting the sun's rays, but I still hate spiders. Lovely poetry, my sweet friend. Licia :-)

    Since I know very little Greek mythology, I am just assuming that this is based on a Greek myth..Great job of converting it to a poetic form..Enjoyed reading it today..Thanks for stopping by..Leavin' On A Grey Hound bus is about our grandson..He has taken a job with a long haul trucking company and it leaving to go for school, etc..He does make one more mess but we endear him..Sara

    I'm always fascinated by the architecture of spider webs, and the persistence of the spider who tends and rebuilds its web day after day. I'll look a little more carefully next time I see one... Jack
