I spin my web in corners

And also between branches

To trap a careless fly

Who likes to take chances.

I am very hard to spot

‘Cause I change colour a lot.

With my tongue I eat a fly

That so quickly passes by. 

I’m the Queen of the sea

With neither teeth or tale.

When I’m happy I laugh

And when I’m sad I wail.

You can find me in the garden.

I like to munch on kale.

My name starts with an “s”

And ends with a nail.

 Come to the fields at night

If you want to meet me.

I have great big eyes

  I’m serious and wise.

I don’t look like a fish but I live in the sea.

One of the chess pieces looks like me.

I am large and have thick skin.

I never forget where I’ve been

And I have the biggest nose

That you have ever seen.
