Spider






Category: BIRDS AND BEASTS.

Source: Welsh Folk-lore

The long-legged spider, or, as it is generally called in Wales, the
Tailor, is an object of cruel sport to children. They catch it, and then
handle it roughly, saying the while:--

Old Harry long-leg
Cannot say his prayers,
Catch him by the right leg,
Catch him by the left leg.
And throw him down stairs;

and then one leg after the other is plucked off, and the poor creature is
left to die miserably. This was done in Llanidloes.
