Dew Drops On A Silken Web - Poem by Juan Olivarez

Dew drops on a silken web I see,
Spun at night while I was sleeping.
And o'er the strands slowly creeping,
The architect smiles up at me.
What a marvelous achievement, before me stands,
Constructed without blueprints or tools.
Waiting for the bevy of insect fools,
That unwittingly fall in the spiders hands.
