Miss Spider

Written by: Lori Hopkins

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
