William is a spider – with a team of three or four?
He’s tucked behind the curtains and the door.
He moves about with stealth and ease – and once a year –
with others – moves into Waverley’s Christmas Trees.
Among the twinkling lights, William and the others – spin their glistening webs –
No-one sees them do it! – They are all in bed.
They cover most of Waverley – despite the fallen trees,
Exhausted by their efforts – they fall upon their knees.
Avoiding all the diggers and HGV’s, William made his way back to Farnham,
to his favourite Christmas tree.
It’s there that you will find him like a shining a star.
So – when next you see a spider – be grateful, jump about and shout with glee,
Cos it isn’t every day there’s a homemade spider star – atop your Christmas tree.
