The Spider

A true story

Dear teeny little spider
on the bathroom wall
however did you get there?
This house has no flies.
Whatever shall you eat?
Dust?
Belly button fluff?

Dear teeny little spider
on the bathroom wall
where is your web?
The window is open wide.
Will you get blown away?
Rain
would be dangerous for you.

Dear teeny little spider
not on the bathroom wall
wherever have you gone?
Have you run away or died?
I will look under my bed.

OH

How you have grown.

About sophiewellstood

Teacher and writer, sometimes the other way around. Some of my writing is traditionally published and in bookshops, as well as online. I've put some poems for younger people / lapsed adults here, and some proper swearing. I hope you enjoy.
