A Beautiful


It creeps and crawls
Right up my bedroom wall
It's fast and quick
It's creepy and slick
Most people are scared
That it will fall in their hair
Some will go for the kill
Take away its breathing will
Its blood begins to spill
We don't care how it feels
It builds its own home
It only works alone
It catches its prey
They never get away
When their spotted, they like to hide
When we find them, we take away their pride
When their threaten, they begin to attack
Then we run and don't look back
Too bad, it's too late, cause of their venomous bite
We lose all our strength; we can't put up a fight
We get weak, and then fall, we grow oh so tired
We look up at this thing, what a beautiful spider.

    spider a creation of wild but very clever in its activities is widely discussed and subject of many poems but this poem is entirely different and so amusing in its correct spelt and communicative wordings and very fascinating and making lot of happiness to read and recite.The poet deserves appreciation for selecting the creature for his poetic work.

    'It builds its own home
    It only works alone
    It catches its prey
    They never get away' - Well said! (Report) Reply

    Nature has a way of appealing to individuals. The poem is good and easy to understand. However, the viper is dangerous no matter its beauty (Report) Reply

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
