Wordle 140: The Spider and the Robin

Here is my small offering for today’s Sunday Whirl:

40

The Spider and the Robin

The Spider landed
on the back of a Robin
thinking what a nice shuttle
the Robin would be.

As they flew through the air
the Spider listened and thought,
eyes following the flight
judging where to leap clear.

Picking her moment
wanting to land intact
and not pulverized
she decided to ask,

Dear Robin would
you level out just a bit
so I could drop onto
that evergreen tree?

The Robin answered
clear as a bell,
please attend to my words
hitchhikers must pay.

Fair enough,
said the Spider
I have the means.
What split do you ask?

But the Robin soared
high into the air
just as the Spider jumped
with an echoing squeal.

The Robin smiled
as she flew on past
watching the Spider spin
the top of the tree.
