Roald Dahl

(13 September 1916 – 23 November 1990 / Cardiff / Wales)

I had a little nut-tree,


I had a little nut-tree,
Nothing would it bear.
I searched in all its branches,
But not a nut was there.

'Oh, little tree,' I begged,
'Give me just a few.'
The little tree looked down at me
And whispered, 'Nuts to you.'
