All of the little animals speak

All of the little animals talk
But not the spider,
The spider does not speak

The cicadas, the frogs,the crickets,
including the grass, they talk
but the spider hides her hoary head
she does not speak
But she sees all
She strings their pains and joys in the cool september air
but rather still does not speak no, she writes
without sound, without speaking
and yet Arachne's tensile threads contain Minerva's mysteries eternal

Moreover no one comprehends her messages
she speaks without text but deciphers all
The birds see the spider and they comprehend
but they do not comprehend the spinstress's silent songs
