KIDSBOOKS| THE RIP VAN WINKLE POEM

Rip Van Winkle 
He was a funny man
And every time he got some beans
He always wanted jam

One day he went to the market
To buy some pecans and corn
But when he got back home
He saw that they were gone.

His wife was very angry
And boxed his big red ears
He lay down for a little nap
And slept for twenty years.

So if you see an old man now
with a beard down to his knees
You’ll know it’s Winkle woken from
His twenty years of sleep

Don’t dawdle but just quickly say
Hello sir and goodbye!
He may not know if you’re a boy or a girl
Or a delicious pecan pie!
