The Star Poem by Jane Taylor
“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 traveller in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny sparks;
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.”
We have a love of this classic lullaby, a song from our childhoods, when our mothers, grandmothers and mothers before us sang this to us to sooth and calm. Rocking us to sleep with soothing notes and strokes across our heads. Fond memories of bliss!
Our little stars hanging ornaments and mobiles are the perfect decoration for a baby’s or child’s bedroom. With delicate copper and crackle glass, with natural sunlight these radiate light. Hang in a bedroom window, above a bed or against a wall as a little piece of decorative wall art. Our stars also can be used as Christmas decorations, with an artisan nod to the festivities.
