“"maggie and millie and molly and may"
maggie and millie 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
millie befriended a stranded star
who's 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.”
“I was so proud of Maggie and Michelle. I coached Michelle the last two years and she has often come back from being down in matches. She's a tough competitor. This is Maggie's first year on varsity and she showed me she won't give up and will continue working the points.”
“We are going to be tough. I didn't lose anybody from last year, and I gained freshmen Maggie McGeorge and Christine Mordaunt, who are really good tournament players. We should have a really deep, good team for the next couple of years.”
“When Dan called and asked me to prepare a eulogy for Maggie, I said yes, because there is nothing in the world I wouldn't do for Maggie. But then, the weight of the task hit me. Maggie was a very complex woman. She was my closest friend. She was my inspiration, my role model for 50 years.”
