Gables on houses
Gazeboes in gardens
White calla lilies
And long picket fences

Rainbow like scales on saltwater fish
These are a few of my favorite things!

Post-it note papers
Comp’sition book pages
Pen and ink doodles
For more inspiration

Dolphins that swim with the moon on their fins
These are a few of my favorite things!

When the tires pop,
When the wasps sting
When a twister comes,
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad!

Dogs that flip over
Garfield minus garfield
Words on a friend’s blog
Chat boxes of ficl’ers

Challenges that make creativity flow
These are a few of my favorite things!

When my stuff breaks
When I cough and ache
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feeeeel sooooo baaaad!

    Though there’s no rhyme, the rhythm is right on beat. Did you do this on purpose? If so, you spent a good deal of time counting it out. I, too, love composition book pages…the smell itself inspires me!
