30 days hath september, april, june and november....

Literally the only time I will ever use the word “hath”.

Any other single use words in your vocab?

(hath actually probably pops up in loads of hilarious shakespeare banter)

There’s 15 days in half September
There may be more, I can’t remember

30 days has september, april june and november

“Which hath but 28 days except 'pon a leap year whence it doth verily hath 29”

looked it up on wikipedia, bit aggressive

Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November,
All the rest have thirty-one,
But February’s twenty-eight,
The LEAP YEAR, which comes once in four,
Gives February one day more.

Must be an American variant

The one I was taught was

Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November,
All the rest have thirty-one,
Except February
Which has twenty eight days clear
and twenty nine in each leap year

A bit William McGonagall if you ask me

want to meet whoever came up with this and ask them to explain the metre

Reads like a badly failed attempt at Iambic Pentameter.
