Spider is an animal, which has any of several types of small creature with eight thin legs, many of which spin weds to trap insects as food. Have you ever seem the spider? When I was a litte girl, I saw the spider at my home. What about you? After you read this poem. Then you may find that the spider is so hard, which likes the human.
From the beginning, the speaker said,"A noiseless patient spider." I think that the speaker describes the environment is so silly. Also, if you could think more about the action of the spider, which walks very slowly and patient. Besides, from line five to line six, the speaker said,"It launch'd forthh filament,filament,filament, out of itself, Ever unreeling them, ever tirelessly speeding them.' In these sentence, I think that the spider makes a filament is not easy because the body of the spider is very small but which should make a filament and keep going on.
When I am reading on, I discover something. The speaker said,'And you O my soul where you stand, Surrounded, detached, in measureless oceans of space.' I think the word 'detached' means when we are doing something, we should pay more attention on our work,like the spider. In addition, the word'O my soul' maybe relative with mankind. On the other hand, why is the second line so much longer than the firat line? I think that the speaker describes the spider is walking and very sloely, so the speaker writes the second line so much longer than the first line.
In the end, I think this poem is talking about the mankind but the speaker uses the spider to describe. If you could read carefully, you could discover the meaning of the word is used to describe the human.
