When I travel around our solar system, in my mind,
starting from the furthest point.
I find, I’ve made a list.

Neptune, a glorious blue, not water, though its there.
Methane accounts for its colour, in its outer atmosphere, its wondrous hue.

Uranus or Father Sky was the son and husband of Gaia, Mother Earth, Greek mythology.
The seventh planet from the Sun, an ice giant, very cold, not much fun.

Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second-largest in the Solar System.
Sexy is it with its nine main rings, pale yellowish in colour, ammonia ice crystals in its atmosphere discovered.,

Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun, and now were talking really big, for our Solar system.
Well known for its big  red spot, but did you know 1’321.3 Earths would fit inside it, how about that, guess its huge then!

Mars, the Red Planet, I can hear shouting, enjoying your project, there’s no doubting!
What gave this planet its name, iron oxide, is its claim to fame.

Earth, we should all be proud, sadly that’s not the case.
People all trying to save face, discriminating, yet we all belong to the human race.

Venus, Roman goddess of love and beauty, so name because of its brightness.
The hottest planet in our solar system, yes hotter than the next on my list
Mercury, hot, but less..

Mercury, small, and to close to the sun to see, unless, in silhouette
To hot to ponder long I think I’ll  end my list with a song,

I wont, don’t fret
