Space

Posted April 15, 2010 & filed under Poem of the Day.

I whisper to my mom.
I whisper to her about space.
I say that there are eight planets.
I tell her that there are stars.
I say there are galaxies.
I tell her that I like space.
My mom tells me
that she likes space too.

Dear Pluto by Emily

Posted April 18, 2007 & filed under Notebook.

Dear Pluto,

It’s us, we are kicking you out.
Your ego was the size of the sun,
And you’re no longer considered to be one of us.
Have fun in another galaxy!

Sincerely,
The Solar System

P.S—You left some of your moons;
we expect that you’ll be by to pick them up.
A.S.A.P.
