maggie and milly and molly and may

I was thinking about partings and loss today. While reading, I came across this poem by E. E Cummings. It describes what I feel about loss and partings. I put it to music and made the drawings. i used a plastic uke to make that beat. 

here is the poem: 

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.
