Barking Spiders at My Party (Children)


Hush now, barking spiders,
please don’t make a sound.
I’m at my birthday party.
I don’t need you guys around.

All my friends are here.
It’s important that you know
you didn’t get invited
so I wish that you’d just go.

I’m wearing all my birthday stuff,
shirt, pants and my new sandals.
If you won’t go, then please hush up
when I blow out my candles.

    CJ,

    So glad to see another spiders poem. We have a lady here at work who didn't know what was a Barking Spider. Copied all your BS poems to show her. I just love them

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
