Long a fan of Mary Ann Hoberman's You Read to Me, I'll Read to You books, I've had fun leafing through her 1998 collection, The Llama Who Had No Pajama: 100 Favorite Poems. The way she uses repetition in her work reminds me of children's speech, and yet it's sophisticated, too. One of those "I don't know how she does it" qualities. Here is "Snow," which is in The Llama Who Had No Pajama and on her website. This poem is just calling out to be memorized. Maybe I'll give it a try.
Lots of snow
Everywhere we look and everywhere we go
