“Star Light, Star Bright” is a traditional nursery rhyme dating back to the late nineteenth century America.
It is one of the most beloved nursery rhymes, having its origins in the very popular superstition that when you see a falling star you can make a wish that will be accomplished.
Stars have been always a subject of wonderment for people and especially the beauty of such rare moments like seeing a shooting star on the sky developed in the belief that something wonderful must be happening.
Of course even knowing that falling stars are actually meteors, the visible path of meteoroids as they enter in the Earth’s atmosphere, and not stars, the beauty of the moment remains and so does the tradition.
“Star Light, Star Bright” Lyrics
Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
