A Spider

(1944)

"A Spider" can be found in the volume Songs from Emily Dickinson: Nature Time and Space - Volume 1 by Ernst Bacon. Bacon actually wrote two versions of the song, and both are included in this volume.

by Emily Dickinson


A spider sewed at night
Without a light
Upon an arc of white.


If ruff it was of dame
Or shroud of gnome
Himself himself inform.


Of immortality
His strategy
Was physiognomy.
