Song of Six Pence

Walter Crane - Song of Six Pence -

Illustration from Sing a Song of Six Pence drawn by Walter Crane. The drawing shows a court jester dancing while holding a small bag while blackbirds circle around him. The caption reads: Sing a Song of Six Pence, a Pocket Full of Rye. The reference to a Pocketful of Rye has been the subject of much speculation, but its meaning -- if any -- remains obscure.
