Original text:

1. A Morning Spider Spins Her Web

She spins strands of silver. Delicate, intricate, brilliant. The mystery captures me still. She’s black as curtained night Spinning strands of light.

2. Rope Swing

Would you catch me? and hold me?
and let me go?

I will wait for you.
The river waits below. Wind in my hair, let me fly to what I used to know The river waits below Help me let go.
