The term nursery rhyme is used for “traditional” poems and songs for young children
All across the world. Lullabies and Nursery Rhymes
The oldest children’s songs Nursery Rhymes of which we have records are lullabies, intended to help a child sleep. Lullabies / Nursery Rhymes can be found in every human culture. The English term lullaby also known as nursery rhymes is thought to come from “lu, lu” or “la la” sound made by mothers or nurses to calm children, and “by by” or “bye bye”, either another lulling sound, or a term for good night for rhymes. Until the modern era lullabies and nursery rhymes were usually only recorded incidentally in written sources. The Roman nurses’ lullaby and nursery rhymes, “Lalla, Lalla, Lalla, aut dormi, aut lacta”, is recorded in a scholium on Persius and may be the oldest to survive.
Many medieval English verses associated with the birth of Jesus take the form of a lullaby, including “Lullay, my liking, my dere son, my sweting” and nursery rhymes may be versions of contemporary lullabies and nursery rhymes. However, most of those used today date from the 17th century. For example, a well known nursery rhyme such as “Rock-a-bye, baby on a tree top”, cannot be found in records until the late-18th century when it was printed by John Newbery.
Early nursery rhymes
From the later Middle Ages there are records of short children’s rhyming songs and nursery rhymes, often as marginalia. From the mid-16th century they begin to be recorded in English plays. Most nursery rhymes were not written down until the 18th century, when the publishing of children’s books began to move from polemic and education towards entertainment, but there is evidence for many nursery rhymes existing before this, including “To market, to market” and “Cock a doodle doo”, which date from at least the late 16th century.
The first English collections, Tommy Thumb’s Song Book and a sequel, Tommy Thumb’s Pretty Song Book, are both thought to have been published before 1744 in nursery rhymes collection, with such songs becoming known as ‘Tommy Thumb’s songs’. The publication of John Newbery’s compilation of English nursery rhymes, Mother Goose’s Melody, or, Sonnets for the Cradle (London, c.1765), is the first record we have of many classic nursery rhymes, still in use today. These nursery rhymes seem to have come from a variety of sources, including traditional riddles, proverbs, ballads, lines of Mummers’ plays, drinking songs, historical events, and, it has been suggested, ancient pagan rituals. About half of the currently recognized “traditional” English nursery rhymes were known by the mid-18th century.
Meanings of nursery rhymes.
Many nursery rhymes have been argued to have hidden meanings and origins. John Bellenden Ker (1765–1842), for example, wrote four volumes arguing that English nursery rhymes were actually written in ‘Low Saxon’, a hypothetical early form of Dutch. He then ‘translated’ the nursery rhymes back into English, revealing in particular a strong tendency to anti-clericalism. Many of the ideas about the links between nursery rhymes and historical persons.
