Shikt der har a poyerl in vald

Title

Shikt der har a poyerl in vald

Date

1955

Description

[Note from tape log on outside of tape box for the original, spliced tape, not included on the tape log of the dupe:] My childhood in Montreal, Canada, is closely bound with my Yiddish education in a secular Jewish school. Many of these rhymes stem from that environment, as well as the one at home, where my Bessarabian-born mother, shared her own childhood memories of games and rhymes and taunts and teasers, with me. Blessed with a retentive memory...I later picked up many more from my informants. The har (nobleman) sends various objects and people to do harm - like a stick to beat the peasant, fire to burn the stick, water to quench the fire - but they don’t do what the har intends. (Each object gets added and repeats in backwards order.) Almost identical to #12, “Hot der hashem yisborekh aropgeshikt.” 41842
