A Child’s Astrophysics

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

We all know just what you are.

A great big ball of glowing gas,

heated by converted mass.

Ball of hydrogen impure,

just how long will you endure?


Little star up in the sky,

you send light for us to spy.

In your spectrum lines abound,

information we have found.

Spectra in the lab do show

how each element doth glow.


Little star just like our sun,

watching you is lots of fun.

From across vast, empty space,

we can gaze upon your face.

Your light has come so very far,

so we can know just what you are.
