Poem - I Love Pluto

Updated on October 7, 2011

pluto is a perfect planet for poets

it's far away and doesn't get in your space

it's small and doesn't block the view

it's not Phair, Pluto's a planet

when I was a tomboy a teacher said

'what do know about Tombaugh tomboy'

'is he an indian', I asked

the teacher laughed

'no not an Indian like those persecuted

almost eradicated by invaders to America

those without honor their word worthless'

Astronomer Clyde Tombaugh

is he related to Bonnie I asked

the teacher walked away...

bring back Pluto is all I can say

      Thanks very much Donna, such a lovely thing to tour all around the Irish coast, I don't think I have ever done that myself... I look forward to reading the poem and Merry Christmas to you and yours also..

      Reread the Innisfree poemDrax. I shall be able to listen

      to it on my own computer I hope. I have been to Innisfree = beautiful spot and there found peace. I toured ireland with my parents in 86 for a month - all around the coast. I am not sure if we went to Tyrone. I like the corset poem and the one about Pluto I just read. Will post an Irish poem when I get back to my computer. Anon. Merry Christmas!

      We should all have friends like Pluto that "will not get in our space and will not block the view"

      Great poem, thank you
