Twinkle twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are -

    Sparkling from your dizzy height,

    Shimmering, shining through the night.


Each star is but a tiny sun -

Globes of glowing gas each one,

     Throwing out its dust and heat

     Beaming down on house and street.


Chemicals make colours bright:

Reds and blues, golds and white.

    Through telescopes on earth we see,

    You burning in your solar sea.


Hot cosmic bodies out in space

Long studied by the human race.

    Twinkle twinkle from on high

    Embellishing the clear night sky.
