The Spider Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


'OH look at that great ugly spider ' said AnnA
And screaming she brush'd it away with her fanA
''Tis a frightful black creature as ever can beB
I wish that it would not come crawling on me 'C
'Indeed ' said her mother 'I'll venture to sayD
The poor thing will try to keep out of your wayD
For after the fright and the fall and the painE
It has much more occasion than you to complainE
'But why should you dread the poor insect my dearF
If it hurt you there'd be some excuse for your fearF
But its little black legs as it hurried awayD
Did but tickle your arm as they went I dare sayD
'For them to fear us we must grant to be justG
Who in less than a moment can tread them to dustG
But certainly we have no cause for alarmH
For were they to try they could do us no harmH
'Now look it has got to its home do you seeB
What a delicate web it has spun in the treeB
Why here my dear Ann is a lesson for youI
Come learn from this spider what patience can doI
'And when at your business you're tempted to playD
Recollect what you see in this insect to dayD
Or else to your shame it may seem to be trueI
That a poor little spider is wiser than you '-
