Seasons of Life by Audrey Cofield



Curved Corner

The Spider Web

I watched a spider spin a web
So intricate in design,
Contriving geometrically
To join each flimsy line.

It wove a perfect pattern,
Engineering occult skill,
To stretch a breathless phenomenon
Across our window sill.

I drank it in with wonder,
What a feat for me to see,
Effacing such a work of art
Should not be cast on me!
