Tiny Orb Weaver


Tiny orb weaver,
Weaver of dreams.
Stronger than steel,
Are your invisible beams.

Golden and black,
Cringing from my touch.
Though endowed with venom,
It's really not much.

Crawling up my arm,
And refusing to bite.
Just you're mere presense,
Causes others great fright.

But you and I spider,
Know each other well.
Oh if you could talk,
The stories you'd tell.

So sit in your creation,
Of silk strong and fine,
Golden Orb Weaver Spider,
You're one of a kind.

    Well, not on my arm he cannot be! I gravitate more towards an oriole's nest, but your poem educational, to say the least, and so well presented! (Report) Reply

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
