Thread Name: Origins: Carrion Crow (2)
Subject: RE: Origins: Carrion Crow (2)
Another Mother Goose rhyme, perhaps inspired by "The Carrion Crow"


Bent his bow,
Shot at a pigeon,
And killed a crow.

Blanche Fisher Wright, 1916, "The Real Mother Goose." Still in print, Cartwheel Books (Scholastic). Also contains "The Carrion Crow." Grade: Pre-kindergarten.
