maggie and milly and molly and may

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 the 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

e.e. cummings

Oooh! I really need to acquire a complete e.e. cummings collection.

I had to do a google search for this one.

*loves*

I have one and that poem's always been one of my favorites!

Mine, too.

I've always identified with may.

I bring home stones too. I have a whole pile of them. This was my first encounter with the poem, though. (I've known "what if a much of a which of a wind" forever, though.)

She understood that worlds were small and alone was large.

Wow, I love e.e. cummings and I don't think I'd ever read that poem. It's great! *off to post a poem*
