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.

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

Alone in the darkness I did soar
                          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
And me         

This was a submission from Arthur Powell a poet whose work can be found at
