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


ee cummings
