Hey Diddle, Diddle

It's a full harvest moon tonight so I thought today's nursery rhyme should be Hey Diddle, Diddle. I always liked this rhyme, because it's just plain nonsense. And a kid, nonsense was the best kind of sense. Grown-ups had boring logic and us kids, we had nonsense. Of course cows could jump over the moon. Just like little girls could climb into mirror worlds and stuffed animals could talk. It was a given that fantasy could be true even if it was only in our imaginations. I think adults would be better off if they played pretend on occasion. When you can imagine that fantasy is a possible, a whole new realm of real-life possibilities opens to you. Enjoy the treasury! :)

Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Nursery Rhymes

Lately I've been singing nursery rhymes to my kids at bedtime. It occurred to me that nursery rhymes would make a good series of treasuries. So, that's what I'm going to do. For the next few weeks I'm going to feature a different nursery rhyme each week. This week is one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy it! :)

Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
And she shall have music wherever she goes.
