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 determinedly 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 around 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 liked you poem it reminded me of when I was laying on my bed relaxing while looking up at the ceiling, suddenly there was small black spot floating above me!
Was your black spot a spider like mine, or was it something else?
I really like this poem because I really like the way you did not use the word spider and sort of described what it was and what it was doing. I also liked the rhyming and it is always enjoying to read your poems because they rhyme and they are enjoyable. what is your favourite type of spider? Mines is a funnel-web spider.
I like how you thought about my poem so much. That poem was really fun to write. My favourite spider is a huntsman. I must admit that funnel-web spiders scare me!
I think it is very clever and cool .
Hi Kristin I love how much you described the spot on the ceiling. I saw when I was scrolling down it was a spider and before I knew it was a spider because of how well you described it.
I’m glad you could tell it was a spider because of my description.
You described the spot really well I didn’t even have to look at the picture to know it was a spider !!!! I sometimes get spiders on the ceiling of our house but we can hardly see them because the spiders we are really tiny!!! Thank you for this amazing poem !!!!
You’re welcome, Clara! I just replied to some more of your comments. I hope you go back and read my replies!
Awesome poem the spot wasn’t a normal spot
Thank you! Have you ever had a spot on the ceiling that turned out to be a spider?
That was really good my favourite bit was that you said it was a normal spot but in the end it wasn’t !!! ☺️☺️☺️ It was very unique.
I like spiders. 🙂
Did this really happen to you ? I would be so scared if it fell on me because once my sister was outside in the garden and when she came back she had a giant daddy long legs on her hair.
I’ve had spiders on the ceiling that look like spots, but they don’t actually scare me. At least, not often!
I really enjoyed that poem. The key part I enjoyed were the way you explained the spot. Was the spot a spider? Because I once had the same problem I was reading a book in my room then all of a sudden the spot moved then I realised the spot was’t a spot at all it was a spider.
Yes, it was a spider!
I liked how you said that it was not a normal spot, because it wasn’t! This poem was very creative and well put together. Did this actually happen to you?
Yes! though I wasn’t really scared.
i loved that poem so much thanks for making it.
You’re welcome, Tharuja.
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.
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!
I loved the rhyming in this poem
I had fun rhyming in this poem. I’m glad you like it.
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.
Hi kristin i loved this poem i really like rhyming poems so this poem was probably my favourite
That poem rhymed really well.
The spot sounded like a spider.
Was it ?
You are right. The spot was a spider.
Mataya chose this was good cause it ryhmed
And it was ok.
Thanks for your comment. I like writing rhyming poems. Do you like reading poems that rhyme?
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.
I’m glad you loved the poem. I really like that you’ve told me why you liked it so much.
I would leave the spot alone if I was you too!
It’s lucky that it was on the ceiling- far away from me!
Was it a spider?
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!
Thank you for your lovely comment. I am also not scared of spiders, but I agree- I don’t want to hold them!
hi Kristin love your poem do you like spider’s ?I like them
I like spiders too.
Spiders are scary sometimes! But they keep their socialness to themselves.
Spiders leave you alone if you leave them alone.
I am scared to spiders…..no way they could stay in my room. But i love your poem about spider
I prefer the spiders to be not in my room.
Are you scared of spiders? Have you ever held one before?
I’m not scare of spiders. But I don’t touch the venomous ones.
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’m not scared of spiders, but I stay away from the venomous ones.
It would have been so scary having a spider above you in your bedroom good poem.
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
Thanks for your comment. I’m glad you like my poem.
I love this poem! I love spiders but only from a distance.
I love spiders too. I think it’s a good idea to keep our distance from them!
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.
Red backs are pretty but they are venomous. I’m glad you haven’t seen any.
My favourite spiders are huntsman spiders.
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.
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.
Are you scared of spiders?
Scared of Redback spiders?
I don’t like redback spiders, but I’m not scared of them.
Fear of it falling on your head
I really scared of spiders specially big spiders . One time I saw
a big spider in our backyard that was my first time that I saw a big spider.
You are very brave .
Thank you! I actually like spiders. Though I don’t like them jumping on me.
Great poem Kristin!
Very funny poem! Spiders are OK, but not above you like that!
Thanks Carolyn. I’m not really scared of spiders, but I know that a lot of people are.
