'The Spider'

Our 56th Poem of the Week is 'The Spider' by Kathleen Jamie. This is one of a series on the Guardian's site which are part of their 10:10 Climate Change Special (thanks to Helen Conway for pointing us to this). There are also poems there by Andrew Motion, Carol Rumens and Carol Ann Duffy, the Poet Laureate. You can hear Jamie read several poems on the Poetry Archive site here.

The Guardian have their own Poem of the Week feature: the latest is John Donne's 'The Sun Rising', 'one of the most joyous love poems ever written', according to Carol Rumens.
