  • Maggie 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)
    It's always ourselves we find in the seaWriter/s: E.E. CUMMINGS, JOHN MUSTO
