this is my favorite. it simply tells everybody is different, in shape,
size, capability, stupidity and more. each creature is special or peculiar,
is expected to show talent and contribute for the betterment of the world.

I like the idea that although the squirrel was telling the mountain of his
own capabilities and good points, he also made positive statements about
the mountain. The squirrel lessened the intensity of the quarrel by giving
the mountain its due.

The poem is great for it communicates that no one has the right to judge
someone or something by just merely looking at his/her appearance! The
moral here is to be not judgmental!

Yes, I realize that Emerson should be at the top of the list for the 5 most
influential American poets.

This poem is yet simple but holds deeper meaning making readers realize
that people have different characteristics or the essence of being
I like the poem very much...and I guess Anyone who'll read it will feel
the same....

This is a precious gem among poems. raising in our insightedness the words
of Jesus to regard the least among us that is the great thing you have done
to me. Mighty we may think but you are a member of migty and weak which
make our life joyous.

John. K. Thomas from India
