Have you seen the little spider in the corner?
She will spin and she will weave and she will fall;
The thread is thin and breaks , but however long it takes,
She will hang her shiny web upon the wall.
So I'll imitate the spider in the corner,
If at first I don't succeed I'll try again.
Though the way is very long, I will say, when things go wrong,
If I try I'm bound to get there in the end.
