Love by May Sarton

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.

“So let the world go, but hold fast to joy.” M. Sarton
