POEM: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star by Jane Taylor

June 25, 2015

Jason McCrossan

On 106.9 SFM every Saturday morning - Jason McCrossan presents Tranquil Time - where he plays poetry on the radio. Today's poem is Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star written by Jane Taylor and read by Gill Fraser Lee. Jane Taylor was an English poet and novelist. She wrote the words for the song "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star". The poem is now known worldwide, but its authorship is generally forgotten. It was first published under the title "The Star" in Rhymes for the Nursery, a collection of poems by Taylor and her older sister Ann (later Mrs. Gilbert). The sisters, and their authorship of various works, have often been confused, in part because their early works were published together.
