Neptune rains diamonds

God of the sea
The fish walk

Supersonic in their stride
Breathing through naked eyes

Talk to the moon
All fourteen of them

No one thinks your crazy
Neptune rains diamonds

Neptune is an exciting planet. This poem was inspired by some interesting facts about it:

  • It is named after the Roman god of the sea
  • Neptune is too faint to be visible to the naked eye
  • Neptune has 14 known moons, which are named for minor water deities in Greek mythology
  • Deep within Neptune and Uranus, it rains diamonds—or so astronomers and physicists have suspected for nearly 40 years.
