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 sea
