An Pluiméir Ceolmhar Lyr/Tune Req: How Many Miles to Babylon (10) RE: Lyr/Tune Req: How Many Miles to Babylon 16 Feb 08


My wife has just been reading Jennifer Johnstons novel(la) "How many miles to Babylon?".

I was unaware that the phrase came from a nursery rhyme, and confidently told her that it was from a poem by Wilfred Owen. Did I just make that up unconsciously, or does it occur in one of his poems too?
