The raindrop …

How tremulously the raindrop

balances upon the web;

glittering in the sunlight

glancing on the thread.

One tear upon an eyelash

might tremble so and fall

beauty disguises all ..

The orb was spun,

the trap was set ..

it shimmers in the rain;

where beneath the sepals

the spinner spins yet.
