Twelve months ago our spider plant
Was just a few small fronds
But something’s happened since as if
We’d waved a magic wand

There has been a transformation
For it’s grown and grown and grown
And, as if it had a point to prove
It’s had babies of its own

We’ve given some of these away
As presents to our girls
To have pleasure watching as they grow
And another year unfurls
