Molly & James
Molly & James

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.
