Keepers (Lothrop, Lee and Shepard, 1996) is an older poetry collection that I have and just love. Alice Schertle is a wizard!
As the weather turns cooler, spiders are invading the house. Bigger ones than usual, too. In honor of them, I'm sharing today's poem:
in your mansion airy
It will not be very
before a fly unwary
you'll tap him
in gauze you'll wrap him
And with any luck
his next of kin
