how does he in these lines try to lure the fly ? 

Dear Student,
I believe that your query is from " The Spider and the Fly" by Mary Howitt.

The fourth and fifth stanzas of the poem describe how the Spider tries to flatter the Fly by praising it's appearance. At first, the Spider tries to lure the fly by describing how beautiful it is and also offers it a mirror. The Fly refuses to go along with Spider but then gives a positive signal by saying "some other time". This encourages the Spider to trick the fly into his trap and he further praises the Fly and compares it with his own less appealing appearance. This makes the Fly convince to go along with the Spider. This is how the Spider strikes and takes the Fly into his parlour.

Hope this helps to clear your doubts. You can contact us anytime if you have any other queries.
