I love to memorize poetry. It helps me keep my memory sharp which is a very good thing because I'm in alot of plays.

Jabberwocky
The Highway Man
The Lady of Shallot
Anything by Edgar A. Guest,
Edgar Allen Poe
Tolkien
Brian Jaques (Alot of the poems from the redwall books.)
And other random poems that strike me as funny or moving.

Ballads are easy, though - you just have to remember you can sing them to "The Yellow Rose of Texas".

Yes, Emily Dickinson sounds a lot less serious when you're singing "Tell All the Truth But Tell It Slant" (etc.) to the tune of "Oh Susannah" or the theme from Gilligan's Island. [Smile]
