Lavender’s blue, dilly, dilly
When you are king, dilly, dilly
I shall be queen
I remember singing this as a kid. Did you? For the real lyrics, see Lavender’s blue.
And to listen to a pleasant rendition of the old nursery rhyme, try here, Cinderella.
post script: Two days to go to the Exciting Event! Stay Tuned.
I love receiving a bunch of flowers, but I also like it when I am down to the last few survivors and can place them in a little vase as a posy.
What is a posy? Well, obviously, a small bunch of flowers; but did you know it also used to mean an inscription on a ring?
Then we all know the children’s nursery rhyme, “Ring-a-Ring-a-Roses, a pocket full of posies”; which apparently does not refer to the plague.
