A Glorious Diamond Too Big For Women To Wear - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

a diamond with to many carats for any rich woman to wear
star 55 Cancri has a solid diamond planet twice Earth size
too big for even the wealthiest richest woman on earth to wear

star 55 Cancri located 41 light years from earth is a binary star
visible to naked eye in diamond direction constellation of Cancer
in constellation of Cancer ladies visit to diamond planet is too far

desire to hunt those huge carats down grows inside like cancer
diamond planet is one of five planets orbiting an Earth like star
diamond planet located 40 light years from Earth so close so far

a diamond planet twice Earth's radius eight times Earth's mass
a surface covered in ladies graphite diamond not water granite
silicon carbide graphite surface surrounding mass diamond layers

with thief resistant surface temperatures
climbing as high as 3,900 degrees Fahrenheit
this dream rock is too hot to handle ladies
