The Ballad of Triton
Refrain:
Oh, do you know the moon Triton
That orbits round Neptune?
This tale of how she came to be
The largest rocky moon.
 
(I)
Once thought part of the Kuiper Belt
And larger than the rest,
Triton always felt out of place,
Wanting to be the best.
 
(II)
She thought of all that empty space
Out waiting to be claimed,
She dreamed of her own orbit
Around the Sunís hot flames.
 
(Refrain)
 
(III)
One day she told her friends goodbye
And took off toward the Sun,
But her speed was just a hair off,
Neptune ended her run.
 
(IV)
He caught her in his gravity,
His pull tugged her along,
Trying to spin away from him,
Her orbit turned out wrong.
 
(Refrain)
 
(V)
She has come to accept her fate
Throughout these many years
Of being so close to Neptune,
But cries icy cold tears.
 
(VI)
With a frosty pink polar cap,
She wants to stay around,
But with Neptuneís energy pull,
Her future is not sound.

(Refrain)

Author's Notes:
Triton is the largest of Neptune's seven moons.

FANTASTIC!!! Why did this get no comments????...There are so many marvels just in our little solar sytem.FRom a moon covered in a frozen sea to a moon  with liquid methane volcanos. There is much majesty and magic in creation.There is a cave fish that thrives in sulfuric acid...Life is pretty hard to stop. It seems to be the rule, rather than the exception..I LOVE this!!!!...len
