“Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” is a poem written by the English author Jane Taylor and was published back in 1806, titled as “The Star”. Since then its one of the most loved nursery rhymes.
The poem consists thoughts of a little kid about
. Twinkling of the stars that look like diamonds in the sky.
. The kid says when the blazing sun is gone, star comes out and twinkle.
. The travelers thanks the stars for showing them the right path with its twinkling light.
. When the sky is dark, he sees the star through his curtains from his room that it never shuts its eyes.
. The kid further expresses that though he does not know what the star is, he knows that it twinkles.

“The Star” Rhymes Original Lyrics
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 traveler in the dark
Thanks 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.
Along with this there are two more sets of poems for children that share a common melody: the ABC Song and Baa Baa Black Sheep. These are all variations of a 1761 French melody called Ah vous dirais-je, Maman by Bouin.
