Hanging by a filament.

The Spider’s Web

It hangs where daisies mauve and white
Stand dreaming in the morning light,
A spider’s web, a fairy thing
Whose threads to daisy-petals cling,
And quiver in the sunlit air;
And on the cobweb here and there
Round beads of amber dew are hung
By elfin fingers deftly strung
Along each gleaming silver thread.
The hairy spider-witch has fled,
And crouches in a huddled heap,
Beneath a daisy, half asleep.

And for this hour of sun and dew,
The web belongs to me and you!

 Enid Blyton Book of Poetry 1934

  1. What an eye you have for the subtleties of nature and the graceful gestures that are part of the visual story. This image gives the impression of a delicate ballet in stop motion.

    1. Thank you – it’s a shame because when this is printed it shows the spider filaments quite clearly, but at jpeg level on wordpress …. hummm.
