The Quirky Life of P

Humor and satire revolving around Mr P- a fictional mix of an avatar of Mr Bean and the veritable Bertram Wooster of Wodehouse fame.

Raindrops on Roses…


By Heart

You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory — what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?

 

The song and lyrics from Sound of Music had always been a favourite with P. He loved the imagery and the happy feelings it evoked…

Even today, listening to it, or even just remembering the lyrics, helps him feel better when he feels hurt, sad and disheartened…

When the dog bites (or his boss barks), when the bee stings (or the mail his bills brings) and when he is feeling sad!

 

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

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eye lashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad, I simply remember
My favorite things and then I don’t feel so bad

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites, when the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad, I simply remember
My favorite things and then I don’t feel so bad
