The planet travelled quickly,

Around its star.

The feeling was very prickly,

Yet the journey wasn't far.

 

The red star was in sight,

There was no penetrating heat.

It gave off such dim light,

One could harly see one's feet.

 

With a turn of 11 days,

The planet was there again.

In the light morning rays,

Without any strain.

 

 A year passed before you opened your eyes,

The planet was locked in a recurring turn.

No one ever dies,

And there is much there to learn.
