maggie and millie and mollie 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 millie befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were
and mollie was chased by a horrible thing
which ran 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 it is like a you or a me
it’s always ourselves we find at the sea.

e.e. cummings
