Under my covers something did creep
Up my leg that made me leap
Out of my bed ever so quick.
Turned on the light with a click.
On the cover was something red –
A large spider was on my bed.
Nickel-size or maybe larger was he.
From autumn’s coolness he tried to flee.
Kill the arachnid most would do,
But I didn’t feel I needed to.
Quickly I ran and got a cup.
Then with the cup I snatched him up.
I went outdoors and set him free,
Where creepy crawlies have a right to be.
