“Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” Nursery Rhyme Lyrics
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
When this blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, through the night.
Then the traveller in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny spark;
He could not see where to go,
If you did not twinkle so.
In the dark blue sky you keep,
And often through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye
Till the sun is in the sky.
As your bright and tiny spark
Lights the traveller in the dark,
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
It is one of the first nursery rhymes I learned in my childhood, and I still like to sing it sometimes. My grandma taught me when she used to tell us stories in the nights after dinner. You can also have a great time with your kids while singing this rhyme to them.
