Silken strands strung stunningly,
a woven web of artistry.
Secretions from innovations soul,
yet born to place each strand,
Elegant economic pattern,
drops of diamond dew bespattered.
Stops one dead in tracks this morn.
Now to face arachnid
To such a masterpiece destroy...
A humbled apology employ.
Hours spent on spinning threads,
a masterpiece of newness
