Mother Goose strikes again

Read a Mother Goose verse. bring back the classics and have a little giggle over "Old Mother Hubbard" or "Wee Willy Winky"

Mother Goose is the name given to an archetypal country woman. English readers were familiar with Mother Hubbard, already a stock figure when Edmund Spenserpublished his satire "Mother Hubbard's tale", 1590; with the superstitious advice on getting a husband or a wife of "Mother Bunch", who was credited with the fairy stories of Mme d'Aulnoy when they first appeared in English.[2] Mother Goose is credited with the Mother Goose stories and rhymes; yet no specific writer has ever been identified with such a name
