It is summer here in Australia. School is nearly finished and the summer holidays are nearly here.
I found this poem in an old poetry book - and I liked the images it provoked. So I put together a few photos and created a mosaic to share with the poem with you.....
ps - there are no capitals because that's how it was in the book -
"maggie and milly and molly and may"
By EE Cummings
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
(from the poetry book – The Charge of the Light Brigade and other story poems – Scholastic Book Services, 1969)
