Wasn't the Ring around the Rosie thingy... About the plague?
Mothers would sing it to thier children before going out, warning them of the Bubonic Plague, AKA, 'The Black Death'.
'Ring Around the Rosie' meaning something like... Spots, I think.
'A pocket full of Posie'... I can't remember that one...
'A tissue, a tissue', would be tissues for runny noses and stuff.
'And we all fall down', meaning... We all fall down. DEAD. :B




XD I know this story.


Ring around the rosie--- The plague would leave pockmarks on your skin, and there would be a ring around it. Kinda like ringworm, but grosser. And deadly.

Pocket full of posies---
I've heard two variations for this one: 1. Posies (a flower) kept the plague away or 2. Posies would diguise the smell of your rotting skin.


Ashes, ashes--- There wasn't any more room to bury people, so everyone (peasants, mostly....wealthy people were buried in a more civilized manner) was cremated. The ashes from the crematorium were everywhere.


We all fall down---
yeah. This one's not hard to figure out. Death.

The Wooden Bridge
The 'London Bridge is falling down' Nursery Rhyme is based on the one of the most famous landmarks in London. It's history can be traced to the Roman occupation of England in the first century. The first London Bridge was made of wood and clay and was fortified or re-built with the various materials mentioned in the children's nursery rhyme. Many disasters struck the bridges - Viking invaders destroyed the bridge in the 1000's which led to a fortified design, complete with a drawbridge. Building materials changed due to the many fires that broke out on the bridge.
The Stone Bridge
The first stone bridge was designed by Peter de Colechurch and built in 1176 and took 33 years to build and featured twenty arches the dimensions of which were sixty feet high and thirty feet wide and was complete with tower and gates. The flow of the Thames under the bridge was used to turn water wheels below the arches for grinding grain. By the 1300's the bridge contained 140 shops, some of which were more than three stories high. ( The reference to Silver and Gold in the rhyme relates to the trading which was conducted on the bridge). London Bridge survived the Great Fire of London in 1666 but its arches and foundations were weakened. (Buildings with thatched roofs were banned in London following the Great Fire of 1666 and this ban was only lifted with the construction of the New Globe Theater in 1994 - the following website is highly recommended for further details of the Globe william-shakespeare.info
The Modern Re-builds!
In the 1820s a new London Bridge was built on another site, north of the old one. This new bridge opened in 1831 and the old bridge was demolished. In the 1960s yet another London Bridge was built. The London Bridge of 1831 was transported, stone by stone, to Lake Havasu in Arizona, USA.
NB There is another Nursery Rhyme called 'London bridge is broken down' - its origins relate to Queen Anne Boleyn - fascinating! And for other surprising revelations about Executions, Torturers and Lord Mayors check out London Bells a Nursery Rhyme containing the original lyrics to Oranges and Lemons!



=======================

Jack and Jill story - The French (history) connection!
The roots of the story, or poem, of Jack and Jill are in France. Jack and Jill referred to are said to be King Louis XVI - Jack -who was beheaded (lost his crown) followed by his Queen Marie Antoinette - Jill - (who came tumbling after). The words and lyrics to the Jack and Jill poem were made more acceptable as a story for children by providing a happy ending! The actual beheadings occurred in during the Reign of Terror in 1793. The first publication date for the lyrics of Jack and Jill rhyme is 1795 - which ties-in with the history and origins. The Jack and Jill poem is also known as Jack and Gill - the mis-spelling of Gill is not uncommon in nursery rhymes as they are usually passed from generation to generation by word of mouth.


Note i didn't type this XD...lol

Let's see if I can remember this; Ballad of the Fool.

I love the Beatles. <3 (Plus I signed up the night {I THINK?} that I came from my trip to Ohio and the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame)
So "Ballad of" came from the song title "Ballad of John and Yoko." I liked the music and the way it sounded {And John Lennon is one of my heroes.}. :3
"Fool" came from my favorite Beatles song, "Fool on the Hill." It reminded me a lot of Gustafa, who was and still is my favorite HM character, right next to Griffin.

Ehh. Not really.
They were just a bit of under-loved characters so I figured, "Why not?"
Gustafa was always my favorite from the beginning when I got AnWL. XD
