The Spider and the Fly

Mary Howitt

Will you come into my parlour?"
said the Spider to the Fly,
'Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've many things to show you when you are there."
"Oh no, no," said the little Fly,
"to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair can ne'er come down again."
