'The Spider'

Alexandra Boyd Crotty was commended for this entry for the recent Junior Poetry Prize (all poets wrote on the theme 'Creatures'):-

'The Spider' by Alexandra Boyd Crotty

Sitting in a net
Of silvery slippery rope,
Waiting, until he met
The fly upon some soap.

The bathroom light glows
The spider sneaks and slows,
He shoots his web
Along the ground,
The fly is dead
Without a sound.
The fly lies
In a cast of web
Up the wall the spider flies,
Already fed.
