I don't know if these rhymes qualify as poetry or not. Are you familiar with them? I used to know what day of the week each of my 5 children were born on but have now forgotten. It seems my brain can only hold so and so much and useless knowledge is the first to go.
I used to read poems to my children and grandchildren too. I was fortunate in that I had the care of the first three grands 5 days a week while their moms worked and the last two grands live right here in the same house. So although I don't think I read them these sayings, I did read many others to them.
I gather these illustrations were part of an ad for thread.
