關於一首童謠One bright day in the...

One bright day in the middle of the night,

Two dead boys got up to fight.

Back-to-back they faced each other,

Drew their swords, and shot each other.

A deaf policeman heard the noise,

Came and killed those two dead boys.

在電影裡看到這首童謠,

台詞裡說是出自"缺席的人"這本書

*請問真的有這本書嗎?

*另外有哪些書有引用這首童謠?

Update:

您好 感謝您的回答,但是我還是想問, 真的有"缺席的人"這本書嗎? 

還有哪些「書」有引用過這首詩,可否舉例出來?

    版大您好: 根據資料顯示,這是口耳相傳的詩(並非童謠),作者不可考,因為算是相當普遍的內容,所以很多書籍或作品都會引述,所以沒辦法確切地說最早是出自哪裡的(就像我們嘴邊常說:古人說....)。是一直集結很多斷簡殘篇,而演變成現在的這個版本。 As to the history of “One Fine Day…” it appears to have evolved from tangle-worded couplets that have been popular in Miracle Plays and the folklore and folksongs of the British Isles since the Middle Ages. . . .(quoted from 網址1) 美好的一天…這個作品的歷史,看起來是由雜亂糾纏的對句演變而來,這種對句在英國不列顛眾島嶼的奇蹟劇本(一種中古歐洲流行的劇本,乃現今戲劇之原型)以及民間傳說和民謠中相當普遍,從中世紀就開始流行至今。

    這個網站提供了很詳細的介紹、分析、以及解釋等等:
