A Few Of My Favourite Things

( Inspired by AND to be sang to the tune of " Favourite Things " from The Sound Of Music. ) Dew drops that sparkle On cobwebs in hedges. Pizza and sweetcorn And lightly spiced wedges. Giggling children Shouting " Higher! " On swings. These are a few of My favourite things. Peacock's spread tails, Purples, blues and greens. Transitioning stage sets To enrich each play's scenes. Harmonious beauty When a choir sings. These are a few of My favourite things. Dogs, Swans and Seals, Big round, dark brown, eyes. Admiring the array Of colours in skies. Funny old memories And the joy that they bring. These are a few of My favourite things... When the darkness Overwhelms me, I can make it light! I simply remember How favourite things Can inspire the poems I write!
