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

Thank you for your tiny spark,

How could he see where to go,

If you did not twinkle so?

 

In the dark blue sky, you keep,

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.”
