maggy and milly and molly and may

 

maggy and milly and molly and may

 

went down to the beach(to play one day)

 

and maggie discovered a shell that sang

 

so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,

 

and milly befriended a stranded star

 

whose rays five languid fingers were;

 

and molly was chased by a horrible thing

 

which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:

 

and may came home with a smooth round stone

 

as small as a world and as large as alone.

 

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)

 

its always ourselves we find in the sea
