Look at Me

Click to view

A teeny tiny spider

Jumped upon my arm

Don’t worry spidey

I won’t do you harm

Off he jumped, then back again

As if to say, “See me”

Then off he went

His visit did not last

I looked for him, but he was fast

He didn’t stay to play

See you again another day

Little spider be on your way
