The Center of the Milky Way

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
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 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.

On a personal note, if I have not been commenting on your site stupid Blogger will not let me! I realize that "they are working on it" and I wonder why after over a week they still have not 'fixed' it? My understanding is that this problem is only effecting those of you who still not joined Blogger Beta.
Have a great day everyone!
