Strange Visitor

An emerald star in heaven’s dappled sea:

The planet Krypton—doomed before its day

By Jor-El’s words that no one had believed.

He sought to save his wife, his son, then flee,

But fate declared that two of them must stay.

Through starry space a rocket sped and weaved,

Its precious burden Krypton’s only son.

The planet shook but once and death was born.

The vessel swept through galaxies until

It circled Earth, its journey nearly done,

And plowed a burning path through fields of corn.

The boy and ship had come to rest in Smallville.

A couple passing saw the strange event;

They hid the ship and named the boy Clark Kent.
