Difficulty *

Summary: This is a nursery rhymes about a star showing the way for travellers.

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 travellers in the dark,

Thank 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 through my curtains peep,

For you never shut your eye,

Till the sun is in the sky.

This is your bright and tiny spark,

Lights the traveller in the dark:

Thought I don’t know what you are,

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
