Design I found a dimpled spider fat and white On a white heal-all holding up a moth Like a white piece of rigid satin cloth- Assorted characters of death and blight Mixed ready to begin the morning right Like the ingredients of a witches broth- A snow-drop spider a flower like a froth And dead wings carried like a paper kite What had that flower to do with being white The wayside blue and innocent heal-all What brought the kindred spider to that height Then steered the white moth thither in the night What but design of darkness to appall- If design govern in a thing so small Picture in your mind the little scene of the first stanza looking at the first three lines the second three then the last two and putting them in your own words Then restate the three questions in the second stanza Stop and think about the meanings of the words perhaps looking up words like blight froth kindred and appall Here is how I put this poem into my own words I found a spider fat from a previous victim it was white It sat on a white flower holding a dead white moth The moth is rigid and rolled in a satin coffin These three characters of doom and decay Brought together as if by arrangement Ready to begin this evil rite Like the elements in the formula from a witchs concoction A spider still alive in the winter a flower with fermentation on it like the ugliness and horror from a diseased animal As the spider rips the wings from the moth they float away quietly The flower was turned white the color of innocence this flower heal-all has medicinal qualities The question is can medicine help the moth or spider be more faultless in lifes order In nature by design the creatures would be attracted to
