Author Sue Lobo: The Spider



The Spider

The spider creeps, the spider crawls,

Within dark corners & forgotten walls,

Spinning & weaving her only wares,

Her traps, for victims unawares,

Salivary silk, her garb & only home,

Where she sits & waits all alone,

As quiet as a dead saint´s whisper,

Only eyes of bead shine & glister,

Upon lacy mists of soft webs spun,

Diamond dew-drops shine in the sun,

How little we understand or care,

For this delicate creature that frightens & scares,

So small & still, with no interest in man,

Yet we eliminate with one step & slap of a hand.
