In spiders web a truth discerning . . .

Julia Moulden, author of The New Radicals shared this E.B. White poem on her Huffington Post blog today. It is lovely and made me think of how the work of authorship researchers is creating a web of reason that entangles Stratfordian flies.

A Natural History
E.B. White

The spider, dropping down from twig
Unwinds a thread of her devising,
A thin, premeditated rig
To use in rising.

And all the journey down through space
In cool descent, and loyal-hearted,
She builds a ladder to the place
From where she started.

Thus I, gone forth, as spiders do,
In spiders web a truth discerning,
Attach one silken strand to you
For my returning.
