Our Solar System-Poem

                            Just like you and just like me,
                            Sun too has it's own family.
                            Solar system it is known as,
                           A real big family that sun has.
                           Sun is the biggest in whole family,
                           Next to the sun is planet Mercury.
                           Next is Venus and guess who is third?
                           None other than our beautiful Earth.
                           Fourth is Mars and Jupiter next, 
                           It is the planet that's largest.
                           Uranus comes after Saturn,
                           In order of distance from our sun.
                           Neptune is happy with the last place,
                           At least it has a place in space.
                          Besides eight planets, moon and comets, 
                          Solar System has many other objects.
                          The solar family stays together,
                          Never gets apart from each other.
                                                                        -Aunt Mary
