Mostly Humorous.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star!!!!

Everybody who is reading this must be quite familiar with the nursery rhyme "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star".
Yeah right, all of us were taught this one when we were a little more than toddlers. And unlike most of the junk which we usually learn in schools nowadays, learning rhymes was actually nice. As a bonus to me, when I used to recite some of these infront of my family after coming back from school, I always got the remarks like "awwwwwww...." or "cuuuuute"!

Most of us are quite familiar with its first prose. However very few are aware that this rhyme is way more longer than just four lines. I too, came to know of this fact yesterday when one of my friends pointed out this to me. She didn't remember the full lyrics herself, but I did some looking-up on internet and found it out (piece of cake, actually). Well, this poem was written was Jane Taylor , first published in Rhymes for the Nursery in London in 1806.



Here are its full lyrics:-
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky!

(Repeat:)
 *Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!*

When the blazing sun is gone,
When the nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
(*repeat)

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.
(*repeat)

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.
(*repeat)

As your bright and tiny spark,
Lights the traveller in the dark,—
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
(*repeat)
 Nice isn't it???
