Children Lore *Nursery Rhyme*

By: Cierra L.

When I was little I would always sing the nursery rhyme Ring Around The Rosie, but I didn't know the story behind the catchy verse. The truth is that the rhyme came out long after, but was referring to the plague that killed many people back in the middle ages. I never knew that about the song I used to sing, that was sung to me by many people I knew growing up as a young child.
