My Austrian Things

(read while humming "My Favorite Things")

Libraries, palaces, concerts, and operas,
Musicians, artists, and history surrounds us,
Musems full of paintings only genus brings
These are a few of my Austrian things.

A bus full of singing and crisp apple struddel,
Homes, lakes, and fountains, gazeebos - beautiful
Bright yummy packages tied up with string
These are a few of my Austrain things.

Walking in gardens and over hill dashes,
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes,
Silver white meadows, the first seen since spring,
These are a few of my Austrian things.

When hamseens come, when students run,
When I'm feeling sad,
I'll simply remember my Austrian things and then I won't feel so bad!
