About this poem
A simple observation of a spider in the winter time. Sterre had the following to say about this poem:
Even in the winter you can see spiders spinning webs. At least, the last time I looked there was a spider busy doing that. Now that the temperatures drop, I think the spiders will not do that anymore. Here is my fictional conversation with a spider.
Was it cold last night?
Did you spun your web to stay warmer
Am I right?
Or were you sleeping
If so, what where you dreaming?
