A children's song game.

A group of children hold hands and form a circle. While still holding hands, they begin to skip in a circle singing:

Ring around the Rosie,
a pocketful of posey.
Ashes, ashes,
we all fall down!

On the final word, the children release each other's hands and throw themselves to the ground.

As children get older the game begins to fall out of favor, since it is perceived as a game for toddlers and preschoolers. Older children also take the "falling down" to an extreme that often results in someone banging someone else's nose with their knee.
