Design Poem by Robert Frost

The Design poem by Robert Frost is a sonnet that makes us think whether everything that happens in the nature is planned and executed with perfection. The three characters on which the poem is based is a spider, moth and a flower.


                          - By Robert Frost

I found a dimpled spider, fat and white,
On a white heal-all, holding up a moth
Like a white piece of rigid satin cloth ---
Assorted characters of death and blight
Mixed ready to begin the morning right,
Like the ingredients of a witches' broth ---
A snow-drop spider, a flower like a froth,
And dead wings carried like a paper kite.

What had that flower to do with being white,
The wayside blue and innocent heal-all?
What brought the kindred spider to that height,
Then steered the white moth thither in the night?
What but design of darkness to appall? ---
If design govern in a thing so small.
