maggie and milly and molly and may by E.E. Cummings

maggie
milly
molly
and May
went down to the beach
to play one day
discovering
a shell singing
so sweet
her troubles
melted away
milly
befriending
the stranded
star
whose rays
five fingers
were
molly-chasing
horrible things
blowing sideways
bubble-rings
smooth
round stone
May
be
the smallest
largest universe
ever-girl-seen

For all the things
lost at sea
we always
find ourselves
at the Beach
