- The sight of the sun rising + setting
- The sounds of summer: cicada's + cricket
- The smell of freshly cut grass + freshly brewed coffee
- The taste of dark chocolate + Red Leicester cheese ...
- 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 ...
