Twinkle Twinkle Little Star


This locationless geocache is now archived.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is a nursery rhyme written by Jane Taylor in 1806. It is usually sung. We all know the tune.

The thing is, I can’t sing. Well, I suppose that isn’t quite accurate. I can sing; I just can’t do it with any proficiency. No one has requested to hear me sing since I was a little boy. I am happy to keep my inner-David St. Hubbins to myself, thankyouverymuch. I suspect I am not alone.

But if we never sang, the world would be a duller place. So let’s sing together. Here’s how without hurting anyone’s ears.

Collectively we will sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, but TerraCaching-style.

We will begin with the short version of the rhyme. Should we exhaust this, I’ll dig out the original five-verse version.

Each person will log the next word in the song by posting a sign found in the wild that features the word needed with his GPSr in the shot. We’ll piece together the song in photographs as you log your finds.

Twinkle twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky,
Twinkle twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are!
