Dunsany Dreams 16

The Architect and the Spider

The architect looked out his window, where a spider was spinning her web. In the distance, the architect could see a great bridge of steel that spanned a mighty river with long cables.

‘And this is why we have inherited the Earth,’ he said.

But the spider whispered to him ‘My people spun out webs lit before there was a human race and we will spin them long after you all are gone.’
