Literature Help

What will you give me for my pound?
Full twenty shillings round.
What will you give me for my shilling?
Twelve pence to give I'm willing.
What will you give me for my penny?
Four farthings, just so many.

  1. Thanks for sharing this poem. I have always wondering how the English money system worked. This will help me keep it straight. I enjoy reading your blog and check it everyday. Keep up the good work.

  2. I got this from a yahoo group that I am on for homeschooling. Isn't it helpful?! I am thrilled that you check back every day and you left a comment... maybe I'll read your name again!
