  1. Three Little Stars
    Poet: Althea Randolph


    One little, two little, three little Stars,
    Tucked away snugly in bed
    Four little, five little, six little Stars,
    Shining so brightly o'erhead;
    Seven little, eight little, nine little Stars,

    Where do you stay all the day?
    Ten little, dear little, cute little Stars,
    Have you a name each, I pray?
    One little, two little, three little Stars,
    Do you have pretty sky-flowers?
    Four little, five little, six little Stars,
    Where do you hide in the showers?
    Seven little, eight little, nine little Stars,
    Have you rag-dollies to hold?
    Ten little, dear little, cute little Stars,
    Are all your gowns made of gold?

    One little, two little, three little Stars,
    What makes you all twinkle so?
    Four little, five little, six little Stars,
    Is it the way that you grow?
    Seven little, eight little, nine little Stars,
    Tucked away snug in your beds;
    Ten little, dear little, cute little Stars,
    Don't tumble down on our heads!



  2. The Stars
    Poet: Althea Randolph


    I like to watch the pretty Stars
    Shining in the sky,
    They peep out only in the night;
    I wish they'd tell me why!

    If I could do just as I wish
    And have all things my way,
    I'd surely make the pretty Stars
    To shine, instead, by day!



  3. Twinkling Stars
    Poet: Althea Randolph


    Twinkling Stars, oh, tell me why
    You live ever in the sky;
    Don't you like it here below,
    Where the pretty rivers flow?

    Some day if I find a way,
    I shall climb up where you stay;
    Then perhaps I'll like it, too,
    Dwelling in the sky of blue!



  4. The Comet-Traveler
    Poet: Althea Randolph


    Dashing gaily through the sky,
    Speeds the Comet with one eye.
    Brilliant eye of golden light.
    Shining in the dark at night.

    'Twixt the Stars he wends his way,
    Trails his flaming bright array:
    "Ho!" he cries as he sweeps by,
    "Was ever Star as grand as I!"

    Though he's always on the wing,
    He, of all the Stars is King,
    And wisely rules his twinkling band,
    In his flight through Starry-Land!



  5. The Funny Moon
    Poet: Althea Randolph


    The Man in the Moon
    Comes up from the sea.
    He winks, and he blinks.
    And smiles down on me!
    He's jolly, and big.
    And rosy, and fat,
    The funniest thing
    I ever looked at!
    And as on his way
    The higher he goes,
    The paler he gets
    And the smaller he grows!



  6. The Man In The Moon
    Poet: Althea Randolph


    Dear old, queer old Mister Man
    Dwelling in the Moon.
    It is such a funny house,
    Like a big balloon!

    How do you go in and out
    With no door at all?
    Does it not seem strange to live
    In a shining ball?

    Daddy says you always stay
    Up there in the sky.
    Have you, too, a little child
    Quite as small as I?

    When the stars peep out each eve
    Then I watch for you.
    So to-night, dear Mister Man,
    Look for me - please do!
