Surreal Thursday: Rhymes & Tales

Rhymes & Tales

For this Surreal Thursday a bookcase full of Rhymes & Tales. The inserted rhyme comes from a 1909 sea-chanty collected by Cecil Sharp in Somerset. It is believed by some scholars  that this verse can be traced back to the French pastourelle. The earliest version was composed by Troubadour Marcabru ( about 1150).

For a gentle version of this song see R. Caldecott’s picture book The Milkmaid.
