Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
Brown paper packages tied up with strings,
These are a few of my favorite things.
Dreamy desserts with bright colored berries,
Nuns back and forth on Staten Island ferries,
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings,
These are a few of my favorite things!
(I think this nun’s name might be Maria)
