A Tidbit of Life

A Tidbit of Life

An acrorn falls from above,
a tidbit,
a choice morsel of food
as hungry squirrels charge about
collecting in pouches crammed full.

An acorn lies on the ground,
a tidbit,
a pleasing bite or taste,
a guarantee of fruitful stores
to last the winter through.

An acorn is often overlooked
by humans too busy to see
but a tasty mouthful fits the bill
as squirrels immerge from trees.

An acorn holds the key of life,
a tidbit,
ambrosia from above,
it holds the key to oaken life
or supplies the drey with food.
