Once upon an Earth Day in a cosmos way up high
All the stars together like diamonds in the sky.
They gathered to decide ‘ THEIR MOST FAVORITE PLANET of ALL’
Between the hot, the cold, the colorful, the big and small!
Every star had their favorite and different was each one,
But ‘EARTH‘ was the favorite of the Star they called ‘SUN’
(Sun’s opinion is not shared by all the stars and so they begin to ‘suggest’ other planets for Sun’s consideration…)
“But number ONE, the closest, is sweet, little ‘MERCURY’!
I like it because it’s hot and I think you should agree!“
“But wait a minute Sun, even though that may be true,
VENUS, planet TWO, has a crush on you!”
“The EARTH is planet THREE…
But I like FOUR, instead.
My favorite planet is MARS.
It’s the only one that’s red!“
“JUPITERS the biggest, with more moons and that’s a fact!
Number FIVE must be the winner! No one can argue that!“
“I can!“ said another, feeling rather bold!
“SATURN, planet SIX, has shiny rings of gold!“
“But if you’re feeling lucky pick planet number SEVEN!
URANUS, is true blue and a big old piece of Heaven!“
“Now wait a minute Sun, I hope I’m not too late,
to cast my vote for, NEPTUNE, the last one, planet EIGHT!“
