Our World Poems Limericks

I’ll be travelling through space very soon,

Right up there with the stars and the moon.

      Earth’s a wonderful place

      When you view it from space.

Yes, I’ll be flying through space very soon.


They’ll all scream with delight as I fly -

As I hurtle myself through the sky.

      When I end all my days

      In a breathtaking blaze,

I’ll screech as I wish them goodbye.


I’ll shoot up to the heavens at night,

Then I’ll light up the sky very bright.

      I’ll hear the 'oohs' and the 'aaahs'

      As I head for the stars.

What a truly spectacular sight!


I’ll impress everyone with my colours,

With my brilliant sisters and brothers.

      As I shoot through the night

      As a vision of light

I’ll surely outshine all the others.


My journey’s at last in my sight.

For I’m now awaiting my flight.

      Let me rocket away

      In a dazzling display

As I wish all you children goodnight.
