There Goes Ethan

One day on the trampoline, my nephew, aiming for the tree,
overshot his leap and jumped as far as the eye can see.
If you squint hard enough
you'll see it in the buff;
a minuscule dot orbiting the galaxy!



NOTE: My nephew Ethan is one of those kids where it's not enough to say he's skinny (if he inhaled enough helium I wonder the possibilities of him floating away).

    Ha ha, this is a very funny write my friend, I truly loved reading this enlightening poem this morning! I am enthralled by the splendid way you put this poem together...with your nephew trying to "orbit the galaxy" oh ok, he wasn't really trying to do that...he might float away as you said he is skinny to the bone! This is an awesome poem! What a remarkable piece, Great Work!!

    Yes... I don't think he was trying to orbit the galaxy (it just turned out that way)... :) I think I'm beginning to like these limericks... gets all those nonsense thoughts out of me!

    Very amusing, Tim! (There's a comet passing later this year (ISON)... maybe Ethan will stop by...)
