Welcome to day eighteen of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.
Today's letter is "R" and my topic is = RHYMES. 



Flour of England, fruit of Spain,
Met together in a shower of rain;
Put in a bag tied round with a string;
If you'll tell me this riddle,
I'll give you a ring.


Daffy-down-dilly has come to town
In a yellow petticoat and a green gown.


Lucy Locket lost her pocket,
Kitty Fisher found it;
Nothing in it, nothing in it,
But the binding round it.


Rain, rain, go to Spain,
And never come back again.


Little Nanny Etticoat
In a white petticoat,
And a red nose;
The longer she stands
The shorter she grows.


Needles and pins, needles and pins,
When a man marries his trouble begins.


***
What are some of your favorite rhymes?

lovely! Mine is in Italian, so I guess it wouldn't make much sense to you. It is actually pretty non-sense even in Italian!

Jack Sprat could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean. And so between the two of them, they licked the platter clean.

I had a book with hundreds of these when I was little, just lately my mum dug it out and gave it to me to share with my 3-year-old. She loves it! Stopping by from the Challenge, nice to meet you. :)

I loved rhymes like these when I was a kid. I think my favorite was

Mary, Mary, quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockleshells
And pretty maidens all in a row.

Great rhymes!

Pussycat Pussycat poem

"Pussycat pussycat, where have you been?"
"I've been up to London to visit the Queen."
"Pussycat pussycat, what did you there?"
"I frightened a little mouse under her chair"
"MEOWW!"

I love all of these! I seriously had a difficult time remembering the ones that I posted. It's funny how little you remember when you don't use them on a daily basis anymore, isn't it?
