A Yuletide Tune

Music and song are known to lift the spirit of all men.  I took the liberty to alter a popular X-mas song so it fits appropriately into Yule (don't be so smug - y'all know about the reverse side of this coin).  The song has twelve verses.  Only the last verse is written below.  That will give you the gist.

My real love gave to me-
Twelve acres yielding
Eleven hefty cows
Ten horses leaping
Nine runes a writing
Eight swords a swinging
Seven shields a shielding

Three game hens
Two wily hares
And a pheasant in a fir tree.

You know the tune.  Enjoy the verse.  Prost/Wassail/Skal !!!  Merry Yule to you and yours !
