MAGGIE AND MILLY AND MOLLY AND MAY

→ Personal, 2020

Personal interpretation of E. E. Cummings’ poem “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 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
