Ceiling to the Stars
By Artie Knapp
Illustrations by Chung Oh
Up in the sky, where the stars shine bright,
That’s where I will be
Enjoying the thrills of outer space,
And all there is to see.
A quick trip to Mars,
Is the first place I will go!
Then it’s off to see Saturn’s rings,
And after that, who knows.
For now though, I’ll stay put;
Mom said lunch is at noon.
But after that, I’ll take-off;
My ship is in my room.
