A Salute to Aurora Borealis

here’s to saluting a beautiful night

with a shifting palette of colors so bright

hail, Aurora Borealis!

your show is like no others

your gas particles shoot into the night

colliding with gas atoms and admitting light

emissions from atomic oxygen flow

causing a greenish and dark red glow

the stream of particles across the sky

flow freely and are pleasing to the eye
