Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Poet: Jane Taylor

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 it nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light —
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

Then the traveller 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 through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye
Till the sun is in the sky.

So your bright and tiny spark
Lights the traveller in the dark.
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

 The Moon & The Stars
Poet: Eliza Lee Follen

Oh! look at the moon,
She is shining up there;
Oh! mother, she looks
Like a lamp in the air.

Last week she was smaller.
And shaped like a bow;
But now she ’s grown bigger.
And round as an O.

Pretty moon, pretty moon.
How you shine on the door,
And make it all bright
On my nursery floor!

You shine on my playthings.
And show me their place.
And I love to look up
At your bright pretty face.

And there is a star
Close by you, and maybe
That small, twinkling star
Is your baby.

Poet: Lucy Larcom

Mother, see! the stars are out,
Twinkling all the sky about;
Faster, faster, one by one,
From behind the clouds they run.
Are they hurrying forth to see
Children watching them like me?

"Oft I wonder, mother dear,
Why so many stars appear
Through the darkness every night,
With their little speck of light:
Hardly can a ray so small
Brighten up the world at all."

"Ah, you know not, little one,
Every dim star is a sun
To some planet-circle fair,
In its far-off home of air.
Rays that here so faint you call,
There in radiant sunshine fall.

"I have sometimes wondered, too,
(Scarcely wiser, dear, than you,)
Why unnumbered souls had birth
On this wide expanse of earth;
Wondered where the need was shown
For so many lives unknown.

"He who calls the stars by name,
At his mighty word they came
Out of heaven's deep light, to bless
Life's remotest wilderness.
Every soul may be a sun, —
You and I, too, little one!"
