Nursery Rhyme November: Hickory, Dickory Dock

I love this little ditti as its complete nonsense!  The rhythmic nature of the rhyme is intended to mimic the sounds of a clock.

Don’t know much about the origins other than that it was first published in 1744 in London

I thought I’d go with a paper cut illustration
