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
