Satellites of Jupiter

A tale that first appeared on Allpoetry.com about Space,  the Large planet, Jupiter and his “Children”, the moons.

Io and her siblings sail round their dad,
telling of what a time they’ve had.
Each one giving each other a mention
as they try to get their fathers attention.

They whirl around him at a pace
out in the deep dark depths of space
playing with elements and watching them melt
and watching them fly towards the asteroid belt

As Ganymede watches his sister pass,
She playfully throws up clouds of sulphuric gas.
Callisto flies past his fathers red eye,
and sees sister,Europa passing by

She smiles at her dad, to her siblings, Hello!
and then with a quick turn, away she goes
and whilst all the children are having their fun
on the tiny cousin earth, the day has begun
