A chapter in the book Family7

Itsy Bitsy Scary Spider-acrostic

by Barb Hensongispsaca

In this land of big and small
Tiny creatures rule it all.
Spiders thrive in their domain.
You don't know how far they reign.

Busy making webs so strong,
Intricate yet never wrong,
Trail across each bush or tree.
Silent hunters, roaming free.
Yet they work both night and day

Setting traps to lure their prey.
Catching bugs in sticky trap-
Always vigil, prey needs wrapped.
Ready to repair if need.
Yearning every day to feed.

Silken threads it spins so tight.
Pressure points to feel just right.
Into trap its victims land.
Dinner cocooned strand by strand.
Ever on guard, bugs it needs.
Really scary...that's agreed!
