What is your favorite nursery rhyme and why? Is there a history behind it?

Ring around the rosies A pocket full of posies- Atishoo atishoo we all fall down. As a child I just liked the game of singing and twirling while holding hands with friends then falling to the ground. Later I learned the rhyme describes the great plague of Europe. A pocket full of posy was thought to prevent infection and sneezing was a symptom before falling down to die. .
