|Night Spider's Advice by Rick Allen|
The Spider’s Web (A Natural History)
by E. B. White
The spider, dropping down from twig,
Unfolds a plan of her devising,
A thin premeditated rig
To use in rising.
And all that journey down through space,
In cool descent and loyal hearted,
She spins a ladder to the place
From where she started.
Thus I, gone forth as spiders do
In spider’s web a truth discerning,
Attach one silken thread to you
For my returning.
N.B. This week I will only be posting once a day--a piece of poetry paired with a work of art that you can purchase for your very own! I don't know about you, but sometimes I just need a week of poetry + beautiful art. (Find more poems here.)
