How Many Seconds In A Minute?

Rating: 2.6

How many seconds in a minute?
Sixty, and no more in it.
How many minutes in an hour?
Sixty for sun and shower.
How many hours in a day?
Twenty-four for work and play.
How many days in a week?
Seven both to hear and speak.
How many weeks in a month?
Four, as the swift moon runneth.

How many months in a year?

The fourth line should read " Sixty for BOTH sun and shower" Not only does it scan better...that is how it reads in the paper copy I have of this poem
