Here's a thoughtful post for you - Kate Long over on Nik Perring's blog, talking about how rhymes and hymns learned at a young age influenced her love of words and ultimately led to her career choices (English teacher, now full-time novelist).
There's a chance to win Kate's latest book. She's asking for comments describing your early wordy influences; best answer wins her book.
I've been mulling this over but the one which keeps popping into my head from childhood days is:
The rain it raineth on the just
And also on the unjust fella
But chiefly on the just because
The unjust stole the just's umbrella.
which is a bit silly really. Though I do still like it!
