A Spot

A Spot

I am staring at my ceiling
and I’ve got this funny feeling
in my tummy, ‘cause I’m kneeling
right beneath a little spot.

But this spot I see while kneeling
is determinately stealing
right across my bedroom ceiling.
It is not a normal spot.

And the spot is now revealing
how it crawls across my ceiling
with its eight long legs cart-wheeling
up and down about the spot.

I can hear myself start squealing
‘cause I know with what I’m dealing
and it’s not at all appealing.
It is time to leave this spot!

    I chose this poem because it made me laugh and I liked when you screamed the most. I liked the word determinately the most of all,
    and it was funny how the spider cart-wheeling across you ceiling.

    • Hi Connor,

      I love the word determinately too! I love long words when I know what they mean. I also like the idea of spiders cart-wheeling across my ceiling- though maybe not in real life!


  2. Hi Kristin
    I liked how you told the reader that it wasn’t just a normal spot, it was a spider. I think it was a really good poem Kristin.

  3. Hi Kristin
    I loved this poem.This was my favorite poem I’ve read so far. I loved it because it was really catchy and it all rhymed as well so that is why I loved the poem.

  4. Hi, Kristin! I am not too scared of spiders but I would not like to hold one! I chose this poem because it sounded different and funny. I liked how it rhymed and how some words were repeated. If that spider was in my room I would probably scream!


  5. I would be so afraid if there ever was a spider in my room. I always get so jumpy and frightened when I see videos of huge spiders.
    Are you scared of spiders Kristin?

    i really like your poem about the spot because
    at the start of the poem i did not know what the spot was so it was very interesting at the start

  7. I love spiders their my favourite animal my most favourite spider is the red-back but I haven’t seen it in real life before.

  8. I don’t mind if a spider is on our ceiling but I would hate it if there are any on the floor! I really like this poem, I have been reading it again and again because I like it so much ; this is the best one I have read so far. I like the rhymes a lot, they are nice! I have had a lot of spiders to deal with in our house but now I am happy because I now know that other people have had these incidents a lot and it is not just me.

    • Hi Thisali,

      Thank you for your beautiful comment. I don’t mind spiders on the ceiling, but I don’t want them to jump on my head. I guess the spiders don’t want to jump on my head though, because they always stay on the ceiling.

      I had fun with the rhymes when I wrote this poem. I’m glad you wrote them.
