Frederick And Geraldine -Epilogue - Poem by Marieta Maglas
Frederick took command of his new ship and crew.
Now, he's very rich; He lives in Rome together with
His mother, with Geraldine and with their children, a few-
Freddy Jr, Rosa, Marco, Arturo, and Lucca-the fifth.
Chiara Gregorio and Francesca have almost a happy
Family; since then, Francesca has never kissed anyone
And she has lost her whole inherited wealth; she is unhappy.
Chiara, in turn, enriched very quickly; she loves someone
Else, now; she's the fiancee of a noble, old man from Milan.
She became a famous business leader; Ivan and Erica
Established in Portugal and started to sell goods from Japan-
A small business; From time to time, they visit America.
Erica gave birth to two children, but one of them has died
From smallpox; Miguel lives in the same city in which Carla,
Pedro, Cruz, and Pedra live; he didn't have another bride.
He visits them often; he still dreams to be a rich farmer.
He has no experience in this domain, but it doesn't matter.
He's convinced that he will be able to accomplish his dream,
Someday; He doesn't have Freddy's courage to choose the water.
He still mentions Bella as a widower- this love is supreme.
Maya lives in the house, given by Fargo, together
With Surak and Naimah; Fargo lives in Rome; Frederick's crew
Has divided and some started to work for Fargo, but never
Freddy and Fargo have separated; together, they still need foam
Sand and oceans to be safe; Geraldine's mother could not cope
With life in Rome, but she comes to visit them annually
From November to April because she cannot sit and mope.
She helps them while saying that the troubles always come naturally.
In April, she must return home because she has a lot of lands.
She has employees, but she likes to control everything
Because, without her, the serfs make the lands like shining sands.
In July, her grandchildren come to visit her, but she misses something-
The presence of Lucca, who remains with Geraldine because
He's still too young to travel; they visit the governor,
Who organizes unforgettable parties to honor their presence.
Fargo refuses the invitations in a delicate manner.
He's the only one who doesn't come because he's busy all the time.
He has found an uncle near Calabria and often goes
To visit him; nobody has ever heard anything, in this rhyme,
About Quintus; I've heard he's in New Spain, but nobody really knows.
(...said the narrator.)
