The patient spider


I wonder what he does
Between catches and kills
Waiting, patiently waiting
On that ornate web- his design
And what does he think
With his pint sized brain(if any)
Standing on eight distorted legs
Above a ceiling upside down
(or is it right side up for him?)
Leading a proper spiders life
Lonely, and whose only music is
The buzz of a fly caught on his strings..?

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
