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 together,

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 you,

You are not so small as I,

And not half so spry.

Talents differ; all is well and wisely put;

If I cannot carry forests on my back,

Neither can you crack a nut.
