Twelve pears hanging high

Melody -

Twelve pears hanging high,
Twelve knights riding by;
Each knight took a pear,
And yet left eleven there.

Riddle, of which the solution is obscure. "Each knight" may have been the name of one of the knights, a solution supported by a French version of the rhyme.
