Poem: A Few of my Favorite Things

 A Few of my Favorite Things

Raindrops on roses,
 A glorious sight,
The scent is so sweet
On a warm summer night,

Whiskers on kittens,
Finer than silk,
Sweet little cat,
Lapping warm milk,

Bright copper kettles
Polished so bright,
Heating the tea,
Reflecting sun’s light,

Warm woolen mittens,
Sturdy, soft yarn,
Woven with care
From sheep in the barn,

Brown paper packages
Tied up with string,
A precious sweet prize,
The gifts that you bring,

These are a few of my favorite things,

Cream colored ponies,
A delicate shade,
A tiny, wee horse
That leads the parade,

Crisp apple strudel,
A light tasty treat,
Feathery crust
Too perfect to eat,

Doorbells and sleighbells
Ringing out clear,
Arrival is nigh,
Visitors near,

Schnitzel with noodles
Cooked fresh this day,
Warm the cold belly,
Then back in the sleigh,

Wild geese that fly
With the moon on their wings,
Beautiful birds,
Royal, sky kings,

These are a few of my favorite things,

I remember them each
From a song I once knew,
The lyrics so pure,
The rhyming so true,

My favorite things,
They bloomed in the past,
When all else is gone,
The ones that will last,

These are a few of my favorite things.


  1. This musical would be enhanced by the delightful additions, in my opinion as a great admirer of SOM. xoxo

  2. Sound of Music is full of vibrant, emotive music. I love it all but My Favorite Things and Edelweiss top the list. Thanks for your kind words. xoxo

  3. Maybe its just me, but the drawn picture of Julie Andrews looks a lot like you to me. A very nice connection.
