Today's poem - Pancake Song by Christina Rossetti

Pancake Song
by Christina Rossetti

Mix a pancake,
Stir a pancake,
Pop it in the pan;
Fry the pancake,
Toss the pancake,
Catch it if you can.


  1. I had NO IDEA that was Christina Rossetti - but, then, I suppose that's why you posted it ;)

    Love the picture, too


  2. OMG - I had no idea that Christina Rossetti ever wrote anything that light and fun.

  3. I was surprised by the Rossetti poem as well, but when I went looking around for more info on her, I came across a book called Sing-Song: A Nursery Rhyme Book. There's a recent reproduction with the original Victorian illustrations for sale, and I'm going to buy it. One reviewer said it is typically V. with some morbid ones, but still thought it worth buying.

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
