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

Christina Rossetti

Pancake Day Pancake Day

Pancake Day, Pancake Day
The pan’s getting hotter
The butter has melted
I’ve poured in the batter

Pancake Day, Pancake Day
The pancake is sizzling
A flick of the wrist
And its stuck to the ceiling

Pancake Day, Pancake Day
I’ve not seen Mum crosser
So which did she call me
‘A champion tosser’

Patrick Winstanley

Tossing The Pancake

Tossing the pancake
How hard could it be?
Well quite difficult
Which surprised me
What an awful mess
After the first three
I gave up after four
That ended up on me
