A FUNNY, SCINTILLATING, CONFOUNDING OBFUSCATION
It was fun to find this online and decipher the obfuscation of the famous TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE STAR

Read the original TWINKLE poem (first published in 1806 by Jane Taylor) on the Poetry Foundation website:
http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/171955

It will be fun to sing, too!

SCINTILLATE SCINTILLATE GLOBULE VIVIFIC
Obfuscation of Traditional Words and Tune

Scintillate, scintillate, globule vivific
Fain would I fathom thy nature specific
Loftily poised in the ether capacious
Strongly resembling a gem carbonaceous!

When torrid Phoebus removeth his presence
Ceasing to lamp us with fierce incandescence
Then you illumine the regions supernal
Scintillate, scintillate semper nocturnal.

The traveler on lusterless peregrination
Gratefully hails your minute coruscation
He could not determine his journey’s direction
But for your bright scintillating protection.
