Sing a song for sixpence


As i learnt today, the Swedish National bird is the Eurasian blackbird. While googling for info on it for a designing assignment, i stumbled upon this delightful illustration drawn in 1880 for the famous nursery rhyme "Sing a Song for Sixpence".

Hopefully when i get up in the morning the tune will be out of my head! *hums
