Happy Mother Goose Day

It’s Mother Goose Day!  I love Mother Goose rhymes and stories, so sing-song, so simple!  My kids and I can spend hours reading the short poems and playing with the words.

There are a lot of theories about whether or not Mother Goose was a real person, and who she was, if she was, but no one really knows for sure.  Everyone seems to agree though, that she wasn’t a real goose. Which is just silly, because it’s not like there’s any proof of that, either.

My personal favorite by the famous water-fowl matron:

Butterfly, Butterfly

Butterfly, Butterfly,
Whence do you come?
“I know not, I ask not,
nor ever had a home.”

Butterfly, Butterfly,
where do you go?
“Where the sun shines
and where the buds grow”
