When The Sky Cracks Open

When The Sky Cracks Open

2 mins 141 2 mins 141

A thunderous sound and the cracks appear, 

The sky has fissured yet again,

The water's pouring down now everywhere, 

With a gush of cold wind arrives the rain.


Angels of clouds come to repair,

leisurely they heal the broken sky, 

Maybe a dancing giant fell hard up there, 

And his tears fall upon us while he cries. 


What if there's a big ocean above us? 

Water that's made of twinkling stars,

And if we could swim in the sky like birds,

I wonder if I could keep the planets in my jar. 


I would hang mars on the ceiling above,

Because red is my favourite colour you see,

Venus is hot so I'd put it in the freezer,

And neptune can be boiled inside the geyser. 


Mercury's small and in my box it'll fit, 

I'll take it to school and show off my treasure, 

I'd decorate my fingers with Saturn's rings,

And sprinkle the stars over my belongings. 


Uranus looks very sweet and icy, 

Maybe it will taste delicious too, 

Jupiter's big so I'd hide it under the bed,

It's the biggest planet I mustn't forget! 


A thunder again, the clumsy giant! 

I wonder why he dances every time, 

Even if he falls, and cries so many tears, 

It dances again and without any fear, 

The giant is living such a happy life, 

I wonder what goes on inside his mind? 


Oh mama's calling! I must complete my homework, 

There are eight planets in the solar system,

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Uranus… 

Oh no I again forgot the others!
