twinkle twinkle little star

.
twinkle twinkle little star
how I wonder what you are
up above the sky 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 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
.
.
as your bright and tiny spark,
lights The Traveller in the dark,
though I know not what you are,
twinkle, twinkle, little star!
.

words written by JANE TAYLOR (1806)

well I never knew there was more verses to Twinkle Twinkle ...

I used to ride a little pony called Twinkle :)

Very nicely done, ma'am.

Frank is filling his little ground squirrely mouth, the neighbour is playing his radio as he scrapes his house to ready for paint...and *I* am enjoying weblogging from the patio.
:-)

What a wonderful thing!!
(Can't wait for twinkling stars this evening--sunset first, of course!)

(the good news....it's really decent music the neighbour's blaring!)
