I'm surprised nobody has yet chanted the poetic gem

Thirty days hath September,
April, June and December,
All the rest have thirty one
excepting February clear
with twenty eight
or twenty nine in each leap year

Or is there a more modern one than that I learned in the 50's when it was on the back of all our jotters with the times tables and stuff about roods poles and perches which I've forgotten now
