Ring around the rosie,
Pockets full of posies.
Ashes,ashes,
We all fall down.

1. My interpretation of this poem is that people are singing about the black death and some of its effects on the people.
2. I couldn't find any figurative language in this poem.
3. I think the mood of the poem is VERY dark, and negative.
