April A to Z Challenge Letter "R" = Rhymes #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

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?


  1. peter peter pumpkin eater, had a wife and couldn't keep her...hmm, can't remember the rest!

  2. 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!

  3. 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. :)

  4. 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.

  5. 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"

  6. 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?
