for Sophie

She runs to the Kitchen and begs begs begs
For milk and flour and eggs eggs eggs,

She stirs and whirs in a big fat bowl
Then into the pan where bless my soul,

They sizzle and bubble and smell so sweet –
We just can’t wait to eat eat eat!

With a pat and a flip and a scoop to the tray
We lick our chops and cry, “Hooray!”

Add a drip of honey and a splatter of cream
And great golly gosh, it’s a pancake dream!
