“Will you walk into my parlour?" said the Spider to the Fly”
Mary Howitt, The Spider and the Fly
“And now dear little children, who may this story read,
To idle, silly flattering words, I pray you ne'er give heed:
Unto an evil counsellor, close heart and ear and eye,
And take a lesson from this tale, of the Spider and the Fly.”
Mary Howitt, The Spider and the Fly
“I'm sure you must be weary, dear, with soaring up so high;
Will you rest upon my little bed?" said the Spider to the Fly.
"There are pretty curtains drawn around; the sheets are fine and thin,
And if you like to rest awhile, I'll snugly tuck you in!"
Oh no, no," said the little Fly, "for I've often heard it said,
They never, never wake again, who sleep upon your bed!”
Mary Howitt, The Spider and the Fly
“Oh no, no," said the little fly; "to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne'er come down again.”
Mary Howitt, The Spider and the Fly
