I'm the smallest of my kind, no doubt about that;
Compared to my brothers, I seem like a rat.

A blue face have I, a blue face, you know;
It's awfully cold here, with poisonous snow.

My name came from a god, a god with great might;
Although you know of me, I'm way out of your sight.

What am I?


Answer

The planet Pluto.

Stanza 1: Pluto is the smallest planet.

Stanza 2: Pluto's surface is blue because of frozen gases. The snow is a methane and nitrogen snow that is poisonous to us.

Stanza 3: Pluto is the Roman god of the Underworld (Hades in Greek myths). Pluto is too far away to be seen from Earth (without a telescope).
