Mother Goose day

Mother Goose Day is observed in appreciation of old nursery rhymes, is celebrated in on May 1. 
Who was Mother Goose? The term has been traced to Loret's 1650 La Muse Historique in which appeared the line, Comme un conte de la Mere Oye ("Like a Mother Goose story"). Two French Queen Berthas have been conjectured as a "Mother Goose" but there is no traceable evidence that either was the reference in Loret's remarks.
In 1697 Charles Perrault used the phrase in a published collection of eight fairy tales which included "The Sleeping Beauty," "Little Red Riding Hood," "Cinderella," "Bluebeard," and others.

This is one of my favourite nursery rhymes

Little Miss Muffet
Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet 
Eating her curds and whey,
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.

I made this filefolder to identify letter M
