133 (who?)
Amongst the darkened skies
Brightened by only starlight
Children play
Delightfully across
Every land,
Field & Sea.

Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.

Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence
Right now or for all eternity such as us.

Shooting stars make us joyful while
Terminator is an otherworldly spectacle
Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…
*xenagogue means "guide; someone who conducts strangers"

UPDATE (2014-08-29) : O mai~Thankies for the DD~ (& I found out "Keppler" is supposed to be "Kepler" but I can't seem to open the file to edit it :/)

Subtle from beginning to end, Andromeda by SavageFrog stands out in a mystical and scientific way. ( Suggested by SolidMars and Featured by GrimFace242 )

I really love the imagery in this poem, the way it evokes a kind of mix of nostalgia and wonder. If I can make a minor nitpick, though, Kepler is spelled with only one p, and, in his defense, dude wrote a sci-fi novel, so he wasn't ALL work and no play. :-) Silly nitpicks aside, very impressive poem.

I seem to have trouble editing it but yes, Kepler's one p (I was thinking of the alternate spelling).

I don't really get poetry, but it seemed good to me.
