Poem of the Month

maggie and milly and molly and may


 


maggie and milly and molly and may
went down to the beach (to play one day)



and magi 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 bubblesand


 


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 already ourselves we find in the sea.
