Nature's Larder


Conkers are seeds that fall from the tree,
This wide leafy chestnut that spreads over me.
The squirrels collect them and store them away
To eat when they’re hungry on a cold winter’s day.

To children who find them they bring lots of joy.
Threaded on string they become a great toy.
A seasonal pastime when autumn has come
A battle with conkers can be so much fun.
