Of Galaxies and Things

by Belinda van Rensburg

There are galaxies galore
In the universe;
Billions upon billions more
Countless and diverse.

Our galaxy, the Milky Way
Has glowing spiral arms.
Beautiful; a grand display
Lovely; full of charm.

Eight planets orbit our sun;
Four near - the others far;
The inner and the outer ones
Sailing 'round our star.

Each on a solitary course
Set by the Creator;
Bound by a magnetic force
Devised by God our Maker.

Mercury is very hot
(It's closest to the sun);
Planet Venus shines a lot
Though life there won't be fun.

Earth is ideal - made for us;
Mars has plains and dunes,
As well as ice and lots of dust
And caves with toxic fumes.

An asteroid belt is set halfway
'Tween Jupiter and Mars;
A glorious space rock array
Which sometimes shine like stars.

Next in line is Jupiter
A giant; windy, cold;
Saturn's even cooler
If the truth be told.

Uranus could be Neptune's twin -
They're both rather blue,
But Neptune's clouds are rather thin;
It's rings are fairly new

Isn't it incredible
To see what God has made?
Totally unforgettable:
The universe displayed.
