How Big?*

How Big?

A football field is big.
But not as big as the Earth.
The Earth is wide.
But not as wide as Jupiter.
Jupiter’s spot is round.
But not as round as Saturn’s rings.
Saturn’s rings are hula-hoops.
And the Milky Way is a bigger hula-hoop.
The Milky Way is big.
But not as big as space.
The sun is bigger.
But if you think of bigger stuff like the Milky Way.
The Sun is little.
