Flying high…

Composed by Nimrit Pasricha, a grade 6 student

Zoom, zoom!
In the sky
Faster than an aeroplane,
Flying high,
Who is this ?
Who could it be ?
Worlds fastest rocket,
Could it be ?

If its her,
Will she come here ?
I said watching with glee
Seeing a rocket in the movie .

“Wonderful moments ” my friend said to me ,
Flying in space with no gravity
I want to meet her ,
I want to fly ,
Discovering new galaxies ,
In the sky !
