Much like a subtle spider, which doth sit
In middle of her web, which spreadeth wide:
If read more

Much like a subtle spider, which doth sit
In middle of her web, which spreadeth wide:
If aught do touch the utmost thread of it,
She feels it instantly on every side.

There was a man bespake a think,
Which when the owner home did bring,
He that made read more

There was a man bespake a think,
Which when the owner home did bring,
He that made it did refuse it:
And he that brought it would not use it,
And he that hath it doth now know
Whether he hath it yea or no.
