"The Cottage" by Eleanor Farjeon

I've already done a post for today, but I saw this poem on a site I visit, and thought it was kind of cute, so I wanted to share it.

The Cottage
by Eleanor Farjeon

When I live in a Cottage
I shall keep in my cottage
Two different Dogs,
Three creamy Cows,
Four giddy Goats,
Five Pewter Pots,
Six silver Spoons,
Seven busy Beehives,
Eight ancient Appletrees,
Nine red Rosebushes,
Ten teeming Teapots,
Eleven chirping Chickens,
Twelve cosy Cats with their Kittenish Kittens, and
One Blessed Baby in a Basket.
That's what I'll have when I live in my Cottage.
