Weaver’s Web

Kim has called us to the Dverse pub tonight to write about Artisans.

Behold the weaver in her web
Many hands upon the loom
Working night and day
Spinning out her dreams
In silken thread

The work so careful done
This prize of lace so fine
Tapestry for just a day
Lots of eyes will see it
Just in time to dine

    Well done, Walter, for making me smile. I love your spidery web of words! I had been looking forward to seeing some spectacular cobwebs in the frosty weather we had recently but there wasn’t one in our garden and I was sorely disappointed. So you have brought me one at the Poets Pub. Thank you.

    Ah….nothing is as intricate as the spider’s web….so beautifully concentric with ring upon ring and so delicate. We try to emulate it with tatting, crochet, knitting lacey cloths. Never as beautiful and the spider’s is the only one that catches the fly! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Spider webs & cocoons are amazing, and I dig them–but not so much with spiders. In CA once we moved into a new rental in the middle of the night and awakened to find black widows in our belongings in the garage. To my horror I found dozens more black widows on the garage walls and eaves. Spider spray just made them angry. I spent hours brushing them to the ground and crushing them with a shovel–grimace.
