### Theory:

"The Comet" is a poem by Norman Littleford. It describes 'a comet in full flight', bringing out its beauty and magnificence.

The $$24$$ line poem is divided into $$6$$ stanzas with $$4$$ lines each. It is written in the $$ABCB$$ rhyme scheme.

Though comets are said to be "tiny solar system bodies", they are quite massive. For instance, when frozen, they are the size of a small town. They are also abundantly present as billions of comets surround our sun. However, "the current number of known comets is $$3,743$$".**
