✦✦RING AROUND A ROSIES✦✦
✦✦NO A KIDS NURSEY RHYMN★★
Family & Kids
Almost everyone has heard the popular children's rhymn, Ring Around The Rosie. The origins of this rhymn are controversial. Apparently the original text has been changed throughout the years and there are different lyrics in different countries.
The version that most people believe describes the Black Death or the Bubonic Plague is as follows:
Ring around the rosie, A pocket full of posies, Ashes, ashes, We all fall down.
✦RING AROUND THE ROSIES✦ This is believed to be describing the characteristic pustules surrounded by red rings that are associated with the Bubonic Plague.
✦A POCKET FULL OF POSIES✦ This is believed to be describing the ritual of placing posies in the pockets of the recently deceased plague victims. This was done to decrease the smell associated with the disease.
✦ASHES ASHES✦ This part of the rhymn is believed to discuss the ritual burning of the bodies. They would burn the bodies to decrease the chances that the plague would be passed on by touching the body.
✦WE ALL FALL DOWN✦ It was believed that the Bubonic Plague would completely destroy the people of Europe and Asia. It is estimated that this plague killed nearly thirty-five percent of the people of that time.
