A Spider Tale~by Rik Bertrand



A Spider Tale

There was this little spider,
It crawled upon my neck,

It just laid down there and cuddled,
So I said what the heck….

I went to bed and the spider was still there,
When I woke up he had made a web in my hair

I went down to breakfast and ate me some food,
The spider was awake and in a good mood.

It ran up and down my arm really really fast,
It would jump really high and that made me laugh.

I named it Wonder Ward after my best friend,
And I told him I would love him till the very end.

He lived on my shoulder and played in my hair,
He frolicked all around like he had no care.

Years went by and I grew into a man,
My spider friend has married and started a clan.

I have many little spiders living all over me,
Never ever ever would I ever set them free.
