"Twinkle, twinkle, golden star,

I can reach you though you're far.

Shut my mouth and find my head,

Find a worm that's striped with red,

Feed it to the turtle shell,

Then go to sleep, for all is well."



The story is "The Silk and the Song" by Charles L. Fontenay. First published in the July 1956 issue of the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, reprinted in a bunch of anthologies; see
