I'm wondering why she looked at him that way. 'Tiny sombreros' is a pretty good description. Perfect description.

    I preferred the alliteration of 'small sombreros'; plus the word 'small' has a multidimensional feel to it. But it really makes no difference to the poem. 'Little' would work too. -LP

      Better alliteration, but 'Tiny sombreros' is more musical. I like the way the (5) syllables tumble forward with 'Tiny sombreros'. Much more musical. I like 'Little' better than small as well.
