Today’s guest poet  —  e.e. cummings

maggy and milly and mollie 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

Anegada, British Virgin Islands.  (guess I’m a little homesick.)

Quote of the day: “The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart.”  —  Robert G. Ingersoll

Daily gratitudes:
The moonset over the mountains in the morning
A beautiful sunset last night
How fat the cat looks when she’s sitting on me
That Patty’s accident was not worse
That I am finishing a big project today
