Come hither, hither


“ You must be very mad,” said the spider, “ or you wouldn’t have come to my little insignificant world.”

Yes, I should not have noticed you, if not a mushroom living nearby.

There is a built-in hyperlink in it; once click very close-up, I am brought to your net.

Sorry to disturb you. But, just like honey to the bee, I just cannot pretend you are not in my interest.

Listen, eileeninmd is singing in Mary Howitt's way, "Will you walk into my parlor named Saturday Critters? Tis the prettiest little parlor that ever you did spy. And I have many pretty things to show when you are there."

Will we see each other again? Go you eat the left side of the mushroom, a bigger you can then made my searching job easier.

Or you prefer to live a normal life, sitting cross legged at one corner, singing "Come hither, hither, pretty fly, with the pearl and silver wing..."

What a beautiful spider and web!

I have not thought of that poem in years. That wily spider is slightly hypnotic and wishes to lull you into a sense of safety. Do not listen.

That spider is very smooth. Maybe you're lucky the spider is so small.

It is indeed very interesting to sit and watch them weave the web and then patiently wait.

For a few minutes I was drawn into that Spider's parlour! It is a beautiful one -- and the spider spins beautiful tempting words! No wonder it tempted the fly. (it is a good thing for me that I am bigger than the spider.)

Margaret Adamson said...

Let the better spider is not going anywhere, let him sitting quietly in one place. * Thank you for the nice comments for me. I was not already with you, because I was on vacation. Regards.
