 6th standard English poem Time

3.1 Time
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 runn’th.
How many months in a year?
Twelve, the almanac makes clear.
How many years in an age?
One hundred, says the sage.
How many ages in time?
No one knows the rhyme.

- Christina Rossetti
