A Tidbit of Life
An acrorn falls from above,
a choice morsel of food
as hungry squirrels charge about
collecting in pouches crammed full.
An acorn lies on the ground,
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,
ambrosia from above,
it holds the key to oaken life
or supplies the drey with food.
