Where Is Marieta, Where Is She? - Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

Especially for Marieta Maglas, my tutor in mind.


Where is Marieta, where is she?
For i don't know now what she is doing
i was just missing her, I've been searching
for her in all my quietness, now i write this piece
before going to bed, i must have peace
I've been searching in Poetfreak, oh dear
i don't expect there would be a misunderstanding here

Where art thou my dear Poetfreak friend
A lady holy, fair and wise is she
The heaven such grace did lend her,
That she might admired be.
i'm now regarding you through William
Is she kind as she is fair?
For beauty lives with kindness
With your eyes so beautiful, you've been observing us
Now i begin to observe you but that would be no plus
Always ends in minuses, since you're gone from here
i don't know whether there are more freaks here
searching for you or do they just dream where to find you?
Am i the only one who's looking for you?

Then to Marieta let us sing
That Marieta is excelling
She excels each mortal thing
Upon the dull earth dwelling:
To her let us garlands bring
To see her again we joyful sing
Marieta sweet, please come here and sing
with us your joyful song, i won't be lamenting
i do hope it won't be dull for you to hear
for your smart occupied ear!
i whisper in your ear: i miss you so my dear....

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Marieta was my tutor on a new poet site, she was there as the first one and she was leading that site and she was also managing beside her daily duty as a dentist. She left that site too soon and I wondered what the reason was. The truth I have never known, but I found her on PH again, that´s why I posted this poem here, which I created especially for her on Poetfreak.Com inspired by W. Shakespeare. I did miss her. AD.3 May 2017.
