The fine nets that the spiders weave
are nevertheless strong.
They hold the prey that wants to leave
and wriggles, which is wrong.
The more it moves the more it sticks
to tiny drops of glue
and also by alarm string flicks
says “I’m prey here!”, too.
No chance of such a raid, however,
for the spider after rain.
And it was certainly not clever
to weave close to the window pane.
