Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

The Star of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
by Jane Taylor, 1806

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder ? what you are.
Up  above the world  so high,
Like a diamond  in the sky.

When the blazing sun  is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

Then the trav'ller in the dark,
Thanks you for your tiny spark,
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.

In the dark blue  sky you keep,
And often thro' my curtains  peep,
For you never shut your eye,
Till the sun  is in the sky.

'Tis your bright and tiny spark,
Lights the trav'ller in the dark:
Tho' I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
