The Spider Who Changed Me

I used to hate insects until I met a small spider, he was living in my garden making his webs; that spider would skillfully traverse like a hang glider, I loved his lacy delicate garden cobwebs ! I found out that a spider is a good thing to have, so, I named him George and let him dwell among my blooms; some days it seemed he was hiding in a green cave, and from leaf to leaf sometimes he zooms ! But, one day it rained so much that George drowned, I was so sad and it was like loosing a real friend; hanging from his own destroyed cobweb he was found, I still think about George the spider and his sad end ! _________________________ January 18, 2022 Poetry/Rhyme/The Spider Who Saved Me Copyright Protected, ID 01-1422-656 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, Insects sponsor, Angela Tune, NA, Judged 01/20/2022
