We All Fall Down

Filed under: glassbreaking, Studio — beforethecoffee @ 8:07 am

“We all fall down” is taken from the nursery rhyme “Ring around the Rosies.” Some believe the nursery rhyme is connected to the Bubonic Plague of England 1665. The “ring around the rosies” refers to the sores on the skin and the “pocket full of posies” refers to the flowers carried in the pockets of the dying to conceal the smell. The children skip in a circle holding hands and drop into a heap while singing “we all fall down.”

Ring around the Rosie
Pocket full of Posies
Ashes, Ashes
We all fall down

regional versions vary……
