Cobwebs Amos R. Wells


Little fairy Kerchiefs
Spread on the grass to dry;
Little fairy hammocks
Swinging in branches high.

Funny fairy cables
Stretched through the airy sea:
Funny fairy bridges
Reaching from tree to tree.

Dainty fairy ladders
Scaling the garden wall,
Dainty net to catch them-
If fairies ever fall!

Busy fairy workman
Spider of gorgeous hue,
Should I steal your glue pot,
What would the fairies do?
