Thread Name: Lyr Req: 'Rose, Rose' round: More verses?
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'Rose, Rose' round: More verses?
At least six threads (plus scouting threads) on this little round. A bookful of speculation but nothing useful on origin. It seems to be absent from the 19th c. compendia of rhymes Is it modified from lines in a play? (suggested before).
Looking over the added rhymes in other threads as well as this one, most were once independent or have floated in from other songs.
