Another Riddle Topic

Post by heinzs » Sun Aug 05, 2012 5:13 pm

Question

My first is a number, my second another,
And each, I assure you, will rhyme with the other.
My first you will find is one-fifth of my second,
And truly my whole a long period reckoned.
Yet my first and my seond (nay, think not I cozen),
When added together will make but two dozen.

How many am I?
