The Literary Life

This year’s prize
for best collection

by a squirrel
goes to

the squirrel
in my back garden

for his outstanding
collection, My Nuts.

(There he goes now
on the fence
with a new one.)

In their citation
the judges wrote,
‘This is an outstanding
collection of nuts,

witty but true,
dazzling but wise,
delicate but tough.

This is a collection
of nuts

we’ll be returning to
for many years to come.

Unless he eats them of course.’
