I am a streak of light across your sky,

My praise your poet and prophet sing:

While I roller-coaster my way around your sun,

They believe I foretell the death of  a king.

My tail streams out in the solar wind

I exult in my fame, in the sunlight , glow.

But soon, my orbit catapults me out-

Nameless, between the stars , I must go.

Hunkered-down, cold, dim and frozen stiff,

I think long, slow thoughts of “What if–

I join a family of planets around a sun,

Could I settle down?

Would I miss having the free run of the universe?

Could I have as much fun?”
