Sometimes simply known as “The Robin”, the origins of this popular rhyme are unclear but given the olde English use of “doth” it might go as far back as the 16th century England.
“The North Wind Doth Blow” Lyrics
The North wind doth blow and we shall have snow,
And what will poor robin do then, poor thing?
He’ll sit in a barn and keep himself warm
and hide his head under his wing, poor thing.
