A story when written as a poem is a pleasure to read, I hope this gives pleasure too


There was once a poor artist and a small spider in the corner of his house. How the spider help him come out of poverty is the story.

The spider which helped the artist

Once there lived an artist,
Who was very poor,
Poverty caused a dearth of ideas
And pulled him down even further.
How could he create when
He saw his dear wife and children
Starving in front of his eyes?
If only he could create a master piece…
One day when he saw a spider web,
Beautifully woven with drops of rain,
His next art was born, and sold for a fortune,
Little by little he grew rich and popular,
Now he has a big house with a special outhouse
Where he let his dear spider and his friends
Build webs and form their home…

A good artist can borrow inspiration from anywhere
