Guyon findes Mamon in a delve,
Sunning his threasure hore:
Is by him tempted, and led down,
To see his secrete store.

Walter Crane, from Spenser’s Faerie queene vol. 2, by Edmund Spenser,  London, 1895.

Oh fond Arachne! Thee I also saw,
Half spider now, in anguish, crawling up 
The unfinish’d web thou weaved’st to thy bane.
