C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
        Thirty days hath November,
April, June, and September,
February hath xxviii. alone,
And all the rest have xxxi.
Richard Grafton.    
        Fourth, eleventh, ninth, and sixth,
Thirty days to each affix;
Every other thirty-one
Except the second month alone.
Common in Chester County, Pa.    
        Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
All the rest have thirty-one
Excepting February alone:
Which hath but twenty-eight, in fine,
Till leap year gives it twenty-nine.
Common in New England States.    
        Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November;
February eight-and-twenty all alone,
And all the rest have thirty-one:
Unless that leap-year doth combine,
And give to February twenty-nine.
Return from Parnassus.
