2a. dank (it's either dank or it's not, dankish is like being deadish)
4. was (past tense)
5. fell (past tense)
6. sighed (past tense)
8. "why not go round" or, preferably "why not avoid"
9. another (one word)
10. were (?)
11. I don't want to reduce the poetry in this but presume it means "his mind cleared"
12. do you mean "A third person"?
My life is so boring, I had my hands full but having got little, just like the spider.
This is a distinctly sentence. Having your hands full means you are busy which may be stressful but certainly not boring. To what does "having got little" refer? I presume you mean something like "I'm having difficulty making progress in my life just like this spider".
