Poetry Friday: Leap Year

I’m sure I won’t be the only person posting this poem today:
The Original
Leap Year Poem

by Anonymous

Thirty days hath September,
April, June and November.
All the rest have thirty-one,
Excepting February alone,
And that has twenty-eight days clear
And twenty-nine in each leap year.

I’ve decided to hand out this poem as my Poetry Friday Poem during Morning Meeting in my classroom this morning. I made tiny copies of it for them so that they can “keep a poem in their pocket.” I might challenge them to see if they can keep it ’til 2012!
