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 are in a week? Seven, to hear and speak. How many weeks are in a month? Four, as the swift moon runneth. How many months are in a year? Twelve, to keep us in high gear. How many years are in an age? A hundred, says the sage. How many ages in time? No one knows that rhyme.
