From an Astronaut's Eye
She is a sparkling blue pearl,
Surrounded by twinkling diamonds.
She is the most beautiful gem,
Adorned with condensed watery vapors.
She is dressed in a beautiful Sari,
Decorated with continents and oceans gently.
She is looking like the princess of solar bay,
Wearing a precious crown made up of snow and hay.
She is a magnificent dancer,
Dancing on her axis with a grace and honor.
She is a delicate drop of water,
Revolving round the burning ball of fire.
She is not alone in the Milky Way,
Because her companion is the neighbor Grey.
She is the most unique in this universe,
Sheltering several thousands living creatures.
She is known by the name of Earth,
Our mother, the third planet from the Sun.
