My Favourite Things

Snow falls on Beacons and church bells on Sundays
Walks by the Honddu and holiday Mondays
Floodlit Cathedral wherein the choir sings
These are a few of my favourite things

Pen-y-Fan pathways and munching Maltesers
View from the tower whether Brecon’s or Pisa’s
A bridegroom and bride exchanging their rings
These are a few of my favourite things

Bouncing on castles and slow train to London
Sounds of the sixties and cuddles from grandson
An olive-wood crib with shepherds and kings
These are a few of my favourite things

When the bill comes
When the phone rings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favourite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

The Very Rev Geoffrey Marshall
