14,287


"Behind a painted picket gate
There lived a quilter known as Kate
She had one son, a boy named John,
One daughter whom she doted on.
She had one husband and one house,
One dog, one cat, one little mouse...
And 14,287 pieces of fabric.”

author unknown, but don't you think there could be endless variations?

"Behind a door of weathered pine
There lived a carver known as Kline
He had one son, a boy named John,
One daughter whom he doted on.
He had one wife, one car, one house,
One dog, one cat, one little mouse....
And 14,287 pieces of wood"

Try one yourself.

Behind a door of wood like cherry
There lived a reader whose name was Sherry
She had no kids or pets or a mouse
She had a car and plants and house
And 14,287 books.

a variation on the theme! Yours is better.(name was changed to look like cherry!)
