I’m certainly no poet, but I did once write a poem with my youngest daughter as part of her science homework. The idea was to teach children a little bit about each planet in a fun way that they could remember.
Our Solar System
The moon shines so very bright,
especially on a crisp clear night.
The Sun is big and very hot,
and also covered in little spots.
Mercury is indeed quite small,
against the Sun it's a tiny ball.
Venus is cloudy like a rainy day,
but much too hot to go out and play.
The Earth is blue and warm and nice,
and this is where I spend my life.
Mars is next and oh so red,
but there's no life, it's completely dead.
Jupiter is the biggest of them all,
but it's just a giant gas ball.
Saturn looks cool with its enormous ring,
It's the solar systems ultimate bling-bling.
Uranus always gets a laugh,
but it really isn't quite that daft.
with its almost invisible disc.
Now we've come so very far,
from our friendly yellow star,
we come to Pluto which some do say,
is not a planet anyway.
If you liked this poem, you may also like the free epic fantasy novel written by the same author.
Truth Teller by Kurt Chambers
How can ten-year-old Charlotte ever envisage that magic really exists? The place for other realms belongs in a child’s fairy tale. Or so she thinks, until she discovers the strange shopkeeper and begins an adventure that changes her life forever.
Discovered alone in a far away forest, Charlotte embarks on a journey encountering heart-stopping dangers and real life monsters, but a far greater threat shadows her every move. Even the strength and skill of her new companions cannot protect her against a ruthless druid assassin.
But in this realm, Charlotte is not the vulnerable little girl she thought she was.
