Thoughts of Dying Cassini by Arthur Powell

Cassini was a space probe sent to study Saturn. It burned up upon atmosphere entry to the planet.

Down.
       Down.
                   I fall from a foreign sky
Endless depths I plunge,
Here to die. 

Alone in the darkness I did soar
Around
       and 
             around
                          Forever more

Until the time came, far from home
Power died down,
Left with no time
                    to roam. 

The first of my kind to perish
But oh what a view to see
Just the
        rings,
              clouds,
And me
