Neutrinos: Our Little Friends
Francis J. Kelly

Neutrinos come from outer space.
They are a most peculiar race.
They do not laugh; they have no mirth.
They pass straight through the entire earth.
They do not hum or sing a song.
They are quite weak; they are not strong.
Inside of stars they have their birth.
In making us they show their worth.

Without their presence we’d not be.
We couldn’t walk or talk or see.
By day most come from over head--
At night from under foot instead.
So let us praise the Lord above,
Who showers us with signs of love.
And thank Him for our little friends
Who penetrate us from both ends.
