Read the poem and answer the questions that follow:
The mountain and the squirrel
Had a quarrel: And the former called the latter ‘Little Prig’. Bun replied,
‘You are doubtless very big;
But all sorts of things and weather
Must be taken in togather,
To make up a year
And a sphere.
And I think it no disgrace
To occupy my place.
If I’m not so large as I,
You are not so small as I,
And not half so sprey.
I’ll not deny you make
Avery pretty squirrel track;
Talents differ; all is well and wisely put;
If I cannot carry forests on my back,
Neither can you crack a nut.
