Hakka Nursery Rhymes
A line in a nursery rhyme is usually no more than three to five characters to make it easier for passing around and remembering. Every two lines are often connected by rhyme or meaning. The number of words in each line is not necessarily the same but the rich content and high literariness make nursery rhymes excellent materials in beginning education of children. Hakka nursery rhymes used to spread widely among Hakka people but through social changes they have been gradually ignored and forgotten. Some of the older ones are quite different in content today.
