Finally: A POEM!! :D

Hey everyone! I have finally done it...I have finally written another poem!!! I have been thinking about writing something like this for some time but never have gotten around to it until a little while ago...so I hope you enjoy this list of a few of my favorite things...P.S. I don't think you can sing this to the Sound of Music tune...sorry....I already tried!! lol ;D ~Allix

My Favorite Things

Quiet times with God early in the morning

Prayer time alone and with beloved brethren

Hearing God's Word preached and God's children sing

These are a few of my favorite things


Cooking, and sewing, and laughing with Mama

Being her best friend while she is mine too

The memories we make, silly stuff that we do

These are a few of my favorite things


Staying up late with my big sister, Holly

While we tell stories and secrets galore

Having great times must be what sisters are for

These are a few of my favorite things


Feeding Robinson Crusoe and watching him sleep

When puppies wake up: their warm dry noses

And yes I love when there are raindrops on roses

These are a few of my favorite things


Taking pictures of the wide world around me

Reading books filled with stories from times long ago

From places far away where one day I might go

These are a few of my favorite things


Laughing, and talking, and sharing with friends

Remembering old times with family you love

Thanking God for both that He's blessed us with from above

These are a few of my favorite things


Remembering the softness of Gran-Nanny's arm

Cherishing moments that are here and then gone

You don't want to forget them so you've got to hang on

These are a few of my favorite things


Hearing Mam-maw play the piano so well

Or Daddy on the guitar: it always makes me smile

Moments when you sit and let every sound save these drift away for awhile

These are a few of my favorite things


Paw-Paw's Sprite pancakes on Saturday morning

His clothes that still have the Bakery smell

The stories of when I was small that he tells

These are a few of my favorite things


Music that's peaceful, funny or a comforting tune

Music is truly a powerful thing

The memories it stirs up, the emotions it brings

These are a few of my favorite things


The WONDER of God tucked away in small places

Like butterfly wings and tiny bee stingers

Each drop of the ocean and curled baby fingers

These are a few of my favorite things


The accomplished feeling when a poem is done

When you reread it and sigh with relief when it's through

And all that's left is hearing what other's think of it

(that means readers like you!)

These are a few of my favorite things!
