| Serenely on her tiny loom she
weaves her web with careful art.
And who am I, with meddling broom to send it's loveliness apart?
For I, who am a weaver, too, look on that intricate design,
And know its deft embroideries are far more beautiful than mine.
I stay my hand, for when I see those fairy tapestries agleam,
How can I wantonly destroy a fellow craftsman's dearest dream?
So I must lay aside my broom, and when my neighbors come to call
I'll draw the blinds, and in the gloom they'll never see those webs at all!
