'my mum, her mum and her dad were recently discussing old memories. this poem popped up that my great grandma used to sing to my mum. it was an early 1900's poem and it went something along the lines of....'
'a pennorth of rice if you please mr. grit, the jar in my cupboard needs filling. Some harricot beans and a tin of sardines, the size that you sell for a shilling...'
They recall nothing else...the mums mother used to sing it to her THANK YOU!

it's Plath. (yay! I am a huge Plath fan)
She uses poetic devices to illustrate the lost...
ideals...of childhood and to show the limitations
put on an adult woman that has been raised with the constraints those childhood nursury rhymes impose on female children, also - though-
showing how those same rhymes have inspired many female children to
get in to writing. Plath fractured everything she looked at...
and in so doing, was able to give her readers a fractured, , , new view
of the object she was looking at.
