This is one of my favorite sayings. Would it be an example of hyperbaton?

Thirty days hath September, April, June and Montana;
All the rest have cold weather,
Except in the summer which isn't often.

Per Silva Rhetoricae:

Anastrophe is most often a synonym for hyperbaton, but is occasionally referred to as a more specific instance of hyperbaton: the changing of the position of only a single word.
