Nehej – det ante mig.
Själv hade jag heller aldrig hört talas om henne.
Innan jag började söka information om texten till ” Blinka lilla stjärna där..”
Det är nämligen Jane Taylor, som skrivit texten!
Vad jag behöver den till?
Det klarnar snart…
British engraver, poet, and novelist Jane Taylor was born in London to Ann Martin Taylor and Isaac Taylor, an engraver, painter, and minister.
Taylor frequently collaborated with her sister Ann, and the two were some of the earliest known children’s poets. A few of their poems, including “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” (first published as “The Star”), later became nursery rhymes. The pair’s publications include Original Poems for Infant Minds (1804), Rhymes for the Nursery (1806), Limed Twigs to Catch Young Birds (1808), City Scenes; or, A Peep into London: for good children (1809), Hymns for Infant Minds (1810), Original Hymns for Sunday School (1812), and The Linnet’s Life: Twelve Poems (1822).
