with graceful ease

the melodies

of venus, earth, and mars

dance ever on

the notes upon

a tablature of stars

on distant lands

the marching bands

of jupiter resound

and hearts take wing

when ringlets ring

in saturn’s jeweled crown

the trumpets sound

the drummers pound

great uranus rolls on

and no less grand

is neptune’s stand

a billion miles beyond

amid the swells

faint tinkling bells

add depth that few can hear

for mercury

and pluto flee

all but the chastened ear
