  The dawn setís after the concert ends in the hall.
The king and queen of the castle were having a royal ball.
The citizens were too busy dancing under the mist of the cerulean sky
To noticed a web being built under the canopy near by.

Mrs. weeping willow is all too tranquil as she spins her web alongside a table decorated with centerpieces.
In the middle of the centerpiece is a chalice.

Weeping willow spinís down the wall and lands on something shiny that breaks her fall.
A Chalice she presumes is what she will now call her home. She builds her new home under the twilight at the ball.

Weeping willow foxtrots without restraint alongside the edge of the chalice.
She listens to the mellifluous playing Cellos in the hall. The weeping willow knows her destiny all to well.

For darkness will break her joyful spell.
Weeping willow believes that the cello players will think her web was a phantasm and that weeping willows do not exists in this castle at all.
Then some one takes her centerpiece tosses it at bay for this spider had a really good day until her splash at the bay.
