Izzy had been very good, both mum and dad agreed
She had twinkled hard for many nights
She hadn’t stopped to see the sights
She hadn’t chatted with the lights
A perfect star indeed.
“What do you want my darling? What would be nice for you?
“I want to shoot across the sky
To watch the worlds go flying by
To wave and twinkle as I fly..”
“Then that’s what you will do!”
That night everyone stood and watched, from bed the children peeping
She shot across the sky so bright
Streaking across with a sparkling light
Then tired to bed after an exciting night
She smiled while she was sleeping
