The figure of Mother Goose is the imaginary author of a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhyme often published as (Old) Mother Goose's Rhymes. As a character, she appears in one nursery rhyme.


  • Old Mother Goose,
When she wanted to wander,
Would ride through the air
On a very fine gander.
Jack's mother came in,
And caught the goose soon,
And mounting its back,
Flew up to the moon.
  • I. Opie and P. Opie, The Oxford Dictionary of Nursery Rhymes (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1951, 2nd edn., 1997), pp. 88–90.
