Planet Roll Call

by, Meish Goldish  (Modified by Mrs. Flannery)

Eight  Planets around the sun,

Listen as I call each one:

Mercury? Here! Number one,

Closest planet to the sun.


Venus? Here! Number two,

Shining bright, just like new!


Earth? Here! Number three,

Earth is home to you and me.


Mars? Here! Number four,

Red and ready to explore!


Jupiter? Here! Number five,

Largest planet, that's no jive!


Saturn? Here! Number six,

With rings of dust and ice that mix.


Uranus? Here! Number seven,

A planet tilted high in heaven.


Neptune? Here! Number eight,

With one dark spot whose size is great.
