maggie and milly and molly and may by e.e. 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

one of my all-time favorite poems of e.e. cummings'.

p.s. what do you think of my new header? i really can't pick one! ):
help me? (: 1, 2 or 3?

I'm a huge e.e. cummings fan! We did a big lesson on him in my creative writing class.
Those photos are BEAUTIFUL. I was staring at each one for literally 5 min. Wish I could go to the beach :)

Gorgeous photos. All of them are breathtaking! The sunset is just so pretty. What a beautiful poem, I love that last line <3

I like the header you have now :) I've been switching headers like crazy too. I could never really decide lol.

oh wow. your ocean photos are absolutely stunning! the first image is beautiful! I love a pretty sunset :)
I am sooo indecisive. I change my blog header constantly, because I'm bored and want a change. I think the one you are using looks good. Number 2 might be okay with the font from number 1? But I think number 1 is best :)
