December Poem

The Gingerbread Man

By Rowena Bennett


The gingerbread man gave a gingery shout:

"Quick! Open the oven and let me out!"

He stood up straight in his baking pan.

He jumped to the floor and away he ran.

"Catch me," he called, "if you can, can, can"


The gingerbread man met a cock and a pig

And a dog that was brown and twice as big

As himself. But he called to them all as he ran,

"You can’t catch a runaway gingerbread man."


The gingerbread man met a reaper and sower.

The gingerbread man met a thresher and mower;

But no matter how fast they scampered and ran

They couldn’t catch up with a gingerbread man.


Then he came to a fox and he turned to face him.

He dared Old Reynard to follow and chase him;

But when he stepped under the fox’s nose

Something happened. What do you s’pose?

The fox gave a snap. The fox gave a yawn.

And the gingerbread man was gone, gone, GONE.
