MY FAVORITE THINGS–ICE STORM VERSION

(With apologies to Lerner and Lowe–composer and lyricist!)

Frozen raindrops on a camera enclosure,

Blurring the view making poor exposures,

Street lights that look like fairy kings…

These  are a few of my favorite things!

Multicolored lights that become so blurry,

Like lightning clouds passing in a hurry,

Auras around what we see in the fog…

Try to put these things in a log?

Pretty trees glisten with silvery icing,

Snow banks encrusted to crunch rather nicely,

Suddenly warming away all the snow…

Freezing later restricts where you go!

Rain becomes ice,

But it looks nice,

Staying off the roads,

I drive away in my tractor-drawn sleigh

Right back to my own warm abode!!!
