The Twelve Days of Autumn

On the twelfth day of Autumn my true love gave to me:

Twelve corn kernels
Eleven rotten romas
Ten feet of hose
A nine-inch zucchini
Eight empty peat pots
Seven shrieking starlings
Six frisky squirrels
Five rusted hinges
Four piles of dead leaves
Three wormy apples
Two dead roses
And a pear that was fallen from the tree.

I thought I'd pop in to let you know you're on the list and at Poetsarus.com. I hope it brings you lots of traffic.
