Creeping, crawling, seeker at night,
receptor of the jeers,
inducer of one's basic fright,
allurer of the fears;
such account bespeaks the spider
nature's ageless deft web rider,
keeper of tenacity.
Although to some your sight unnerves
at your designs I cheer,
acknowledgement your skill deserves
Erector of entrapping strings,
expert on silken threads,
applier of concentric rings,
spinner of spider webs.
Persistent spider, form your net
your boundaries to protect;
converging guy lines you have met
you eight-legged architect!
And if your web is taken down
another may be wider,
built with substance only found
within the skillful spider.
