Poem: "Astronomical"

By: Eve Estelle

Ever tried to count the stars?
Even just from Earth to Mars?
Ever seen a comet's light
As it drifts across the expanse of night?

The skies above, though still they seem,
Darker than shadow, but with brilliance they teem;
With stellar sights spanning
Far beyond what our eyes can see,
This is a vast land full of mystery;
Colorful displays, deadly gamma rays,
Galaxies by the billions,
Planets by the trillions;
But not even the brightest light,
The largest star,
Can flee the black fury that lurks out of sight.

Not for the weak, nor for the bold,
This is a place
Where tales are told;
Oh, what a huge mistake it'd be,
If we stopped looking at this deep, dark sea.
