A HUNGRY SPIDER MADE A WEB. Do you like Spider's xx
Spider called
The Spider

A hungry spider made a web
Of thread so very fine,
Your tiny fingers scarce could feel
The little tender line.

Round-about, and round-about,
And round-about it spun,
Straight across and back again,
Until the web was done.

Oh, what a pretty shining web
It was when it was done!
The little flies all came to see

It hanging in the sun.

Round-about, and round-about,
And round-about they danced,
Across the web and back again
They darted and they glanced.

"I am hungry very hungry"
said the spider to a fly.
"If you were caught within the web,
You very soon would die."
But round-about, and round-about,
And round-aboutonce more,
Across the web and back again
They flitted as before.

For all the flies were much to wise
To venture near the spider;
They flaped their little wings and flew
In circles rather wider.

Round-about, and round-about,
And round-about went they,
Across the web and back again,
And then they flew away.

This Rhyme was written in a book of Aunt Effie's Rhymes.
