A little star was born,
Opened eyes and yawned.
Looked around and found
Blinking lights abound.

What are those? Or who
Are blinking red and blue?
Sometimes don’t they move,
And playing peekaboo?

Stars they are, and planets
And asteroid belts
Satellites, comets
And, like you, small starlets.

I like that little blue,
Yonder, see, do you?
Like a drop of dew,
Mom, is that one new?

Why does that one glow
When the night does grow
Does it try to show
Us something we should know?

Two nights it has fun
It sparkles like the sun
Every year it’s done
It’s Diwali, my son!
