- 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

    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.

    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

    I have so much enjoyed your myth my dear Anne-Lise! You brought to mind that I have learned the myth as a child at the Greek primary school. Allow me, just for the readers, to add that Arachne was the daughter of Idmon who was a dyer! Athena the daughter of Zeus and Goddess of wisdom! It shows that even "Gods" had human weaknesses fact that indirectly excuses easier human shortcomings! Thank you again for passing on this lovely myth in such a lovely way!
