I thought some extra knowledge won’t hurt our little brains. So here’s something you ought to know –

“Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” was written by Jane Taylor in 1806! The whole poem is as below :-

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 spark,
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.

Thank you Jane Taylor!

    Hey, after reading the “missing” part of this cool poem, I am feeling as if I was cheated in school, when they taught us only the first para !!

    God knows, how many other poems were shortened ??
    is there any consolidated place where we can see these “uncut” versions ?? [:D]

    seriously they could have told us that it is the cut version and that when we grow up we need to read the uncut version 😉
