Thirty days. . .


Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
February has twenty-eight alone,
All the rest have thirty-one,
Excepting leap-year, that's the time
When February's days are twenty-nine.
Google sites Mother Goose as the author of this poem/jingle. I think it probably predates Mother Goose, but that's just me.
We learned it early on in elementary school, and I learned it well, apparently. I quoted it to myself this morning while I was planning some things to do before September ends. Do any of you do this?
A big Thank You to the teacher that insisted we memorize this.
