Saturn

No, its not an ego-trip [for a change!] but about the planet.

Saturn

Grey-tinged giant
Suspended on high;
Golden rings ever
Hover by thy side.
Bracelets of dust
Glistening in gold.

Heart of solid stone,
Vapours fill thy bulk.
Desolate, and cold,
Apollo's distant light
Touches too pale
Thy withered face.

In darkness spin thee
Eternally and serene;
Not deposed or fallen
But a Titan of the sky
Reigning o'er the dark
Empty cavern of Night.

Oh yeah...I love this:

...bracelets of dust...

and this:

Heart of solid stone,
Vapours fill thy bulk.
Desolate, and cold,
Apollo's distant light
Touches too pale
Thy withered face.

I can barely swallow it...it's like a sweet big jaw breaker in the mouth...


Very nice piece, Saturn. You capture the planet's beauty just right...this is the second poem about Saturn on this forum now... :wink:

Yes...I wrote one a while back called "Saturn's Girl."

Was it that forgettable...? :P

No I thought you meant there was another poem called just 'Saturn'.

Of course I remember your little tribute :wink:

Where's that dark poem? :wink:

That wasn't dark at all, was it?

I mean this:
