The Spider’s Hotel

“You have been my friend, replied Charlotte, that in itself
is a tremendous thing”

Quote from Charlotte

Charlotte’s Web
Spiders can be creepy and scary, and sometimes frightening,
But they can be whimsical and funny and fun to watch.
One day when I was walking, I came upon some juniper
Bushes with some spider webs spun amongst the juniper berries.
I thought about how diligent and earnest these little
creatures are, and wrote a little poem.
Every year they pack their bags with their
Spinning wheels
To spend the summer in bungalows
Built on a juniper bush, where green fern
And monkey flowers grow, and the
wind doesn’t blow
Gardens hang from balconies high in the air
As they sit in their chairs
Spinning away as their babies play
They are proud of their bungalows and feel
Like the elite. Their suites are the best
The other spiders are late and stay as guests
On the bottom floor, swinging on a web to
Visit friends next door
In the evening they gather together to share their
Tales and play their fiddles on bended knees
Eating juniper berry pie and watch the dance of
The fireflies
The little spiders sang and played as the yellow
Moon rose, and with a yawn their eyelids close
The season flew by as they busily spun, a spider‘s
Work is never done
The rainy season comes and they pack their
Bags, saying goodbye
But they will be back next year to stay at the
Juniper Hotel!
