Spider and the Fly Poem by Alexander Coppedge


I’m flying over flowers
Please watch me
The fly said to the spider below
Look at me, as I go so high
WEe.eee
Soaring beyond some moments
Changing to dive low
My wings beat so fast, can’t touch me
Here, now there: like at once
Said the spider, no wings have I
Nor can I fly
I sit here in mid air at most
Show me closer your wonder here
The fly replied care free
I'm flattered by your grace
See the things I do
Suddenly, a ting!
The fly stopped short
And then a loud cry out
Then crunch
