LOVE

Kathy L White 1954 (Redwood City, CA)



LOVE

Fragile as a spider's web, hanging in space
Between tall grasses, it is torn again and
again.
A passing dog, or simply the wind can do
it.
Several times a day I gather myself
together and spin it again.

Spiders are patient weavers.
They never give up.
And who knows what keeps them at it?
Hunger, no doubt,
And hope.
