The Unseen Spider - Poem by Dr John Celes

Across the college porch, there stood a piece –
A model of our college that looked fine,
Within a glass-case placed on a table,
And made to scale and painted in nice way!

The medical college looked so lovely,
Located ’midst flora and good fauna –
With trees of every sort and gardens neat,
Where snakes and scorpions and pea-fowls abound!

The campus was a natural beauteous scene,
Alluring on-lookers with natural ease;
The spell-bound parents left their wards to learn
In Nature’s lap, and noiseless air and peace!

The model old seemed beautifully made;
A bit of cob-web lay that never moved!
The spider lone was traceless on the scene:
Perhaps, it died without enough of food!

The strand of cob-web made the model great!
No human hands can match a spider’s legs!
