Does anyone know where I can find the story that contains the words

Rowan tree rowan tree let your berries down on me.

I heard it at school some 50+ years ago but have never found it since.

Also the Old Lady Who Lived in a Vin

Polegar Bottle.

Sorry, not familiar with the first, but will watch for an answer with interest.

Thanks for the try Luath, the one I am interested in would have been dated for the 1950s & this one has a first edition date of the 1970s, & the piccys were definately a vinegar bottle, not an oast.
