Creeping, crawling, seeker at night,
receptor of the jeers,
inducer of one's basic fright,
allurer of the fears;
such account bespeaks the spider
perhaps unfoundedly,
nature's ageless deft web rider,
keeper of tenacity.

Although to some your sight unnerves
at your designs I cheer,
acknowledgement your skill deserves
arachnid engineer!
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.
