The aliens were a little bemused

for while floating around earth, in the sky

they spotted something , that made them confused

and made them ask each other why?

for sat by a stretch of a sandy beach

a little girl stood surrounded by sea

attracted by the balloons –

there were two or three

“Would you like some help” – said the captain of craft

as the planets , they pulled her, fore and aft

“er yes,sir” the girl called out a little amused

seeing the spaceship – left her confused

The planets – above her – had lost their way

and some, like Jupiter were starting to stray

so the captain called up some extra ships

to grasp on the planets lines for grip

And the spaceships pulled the planets up to the sky

letting go of the planets and watching them fly

as they moved in the darkness with plenty of grace

as they found their positions in the map of space

And the girl in this story – well, what of her ?

The aliens discussed and began to confer

and gave her a gift that was worth more than balloons

precious stones from the rocket made when it went zoom
