The Dirigible Balloon

Riddle Me

Listen to the poem ...
Sneaking as quiet as quiet can be
Padding on eight legs where you cannot see
I hide behind cupboards and under the stairs
Down the rain spout and in attic layers
Every dark corner is webbed in your home
Riddle me this, what am I in this poem?
