How very small

Language: English

How very small is the little plant that springs up 
from the acorn and how slowly it grows. And yet by 
growing a little each day, and year by year, it 
finally becomes a mighty oak and the birds sing 
in its branches and many cattle repose in its shade.

Note: this is a prose text. The line-breaks are arbitrary.
