A Spider’s Web
The spider, dropping down from twig,
Unfolds a plan of her devising,
A thin premeditated rig
To use in rising.
And all that journey down through space,
In cool descent and loyal hearted,
She spins a ladder to the place
From where she started.
Thus I, gone forth as spiders do
In spider’s web a truth discerning,
Attach one silken thread to you
For my returning.EB White
The series “Spider’s Web” commemorates and processes the death of a dear friend.
EB White’s poem “A Spider’s Web” was used as an inspirational influence which lead to the creation of figures that stand singularly yet attached to others by either a small cotton cord or with only the illusion of an attachment.
