Little by Little

"Little by little," an acorn said,

As it slowly sank in its mossy bed,

"I am improving every day,

Hidden deep in the earth away."

Little by little, each day it grew;

Little by little, it sipped the dew;

Downward it sent out a thread-like root;

Up in the air sprung a tiny shoot.

Day after day, and year after year,

Little by little the leaves appear;

And the slender branches spread far and wide,

Till the mighty oak is the forest's pride.

The Storm

by Sara Coleridge

See lightening is flashing,

The forest is crashing,

The rain will come dashing,

A flood will be rising

The heavens are scowling.

The thunder is growling,

The loud winds are howling,

The storm has come suddenly on!

But now the sky clears,

The bright sun appears,

Now nobody fears,

But soon every could will be gone.
