Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes...
Silver-white winters that melt into springs...
these are a few of my favorite things.
Every morning you greet me
Small and white, clean and bright
You look happy to meet me
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever
Bless my homeland forever
(The Sound of Music, Rodgers & Hammerstein)
Franz Von DeFregger, 1872
