Poem 27

Time for another found poem. This one taken from an article from NASA, for kids, about black holes. You can read that article here.


A black hole is a place

where gravity pulls so much that

even light can not get out

 

When a star is dying

people are invisible

 

Black holes can be as small as 

just one atom

the mass of a large mountain

"stellar" 

"supermassive" 

masses that are more than 1 million suns 

 

Every large galaxy contains a black hole center

 

Black holes–

formed when the universe began

Black holes–

made when a star falls in upon itself

 

Stars– 

orbiting a black hole

not seen with human eyes 

 

The sun will never turn into a black hole 

 

The sun is not a big enough star 

to answer questions about the universe
