Originally the lyrics went, “ring around the Rosie, pocket full of posies, achoo, achoo, we all fall down!” The ring around the “rosie” was what the lesion looked like on the skin, the posies were thought to ward off the disease, so they often kept them in their pockets, and achoo was the sneezing symptoms. (I don’t remember why it was changed to “ashes”). Falling down of course meant dying. Pretty strange how they could’ve made a children’s song from the Black Plague...

We sang it husha, husha we all fall down when we were kids. Grew up on the prairies in Canada.

Interesting. What does husha mean?

Not sure. It could be mimicing a sneeze or mean quiet now?

The "beak" cone was to put flowers / herbs in, which others have pointed out were thought to ward off the disease. "Pocket full of posies"

Interesting. Almost like “smudging”. After seeing that mask, though, I wouldn’t want to keep the cone...
