Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star Mobile

Making Stars

My new star mobile was inspired by that song that so many of us know and sing to our children, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Upon making it I looked up the lyrics for the original song and found that they are a bit different than the ones I have sung all these years and are even more beautiful.  The lyrics were first published as a poem with the title "The Star" by sisters Ann and Jane Taylor (1783–1824) in Rhymes for the Nursery in London in 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 traveler 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. As your bright and tiny spark, Lights the traveler in the dark. Though I know not what you are, Twinkle, twinkle, little star. Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder what you are. Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky. Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder what you are. How I wonder what you are. Did you know the full lyrics? I didn't but the words are so lovely and now I love this song even more. stardetail
