Celestial Love-Call - Poem by John Puddifoot

My love is a star in a far-off galaxy –
U D F Y 4O8 double 3.
I know of her only through Hubble, you see.
In all outer space she has not noticed me.

But I think that I love her simply because
She’s lovely and shapely and looks sort of warm.
I panic – around her are dreaded white dwarves!
Oh what can I do to prevent her from harm?

What can I do? What can I say?
She’s 13.2 billion light years away!
My love is a star in a far galaxy.
U D F Y 4O8 double 3.
