Come fly with me!

 Come fly with me into the sunset

Over roofs and trees

Beneath orange clouds

And the pale moon

Come fly with me into the sunset

Spread your wings, fly with me

Let me take you to a dreamland

A dreamland where souls are free


I dedicate this poem to Ann Marcaida, a wonderful person and mentor, who passed away yesterday aged only 56. She’ll be sorely missed.

  1. What a wonderful dedication. I’m so sorry and I’m sure you will miss her. But this lovely post is a fitting and loving gift. I’m sure she appreciates it.

    On the gather FB page one post has a date 1959-2015 which would put Ann in her 50s. I think that is accurate because I know she was older than me.

    I love the photos of the bird (yours ?). The poem is beautiful. I like how it switches from the temporal to the “dreamland where souls are free”.

    I’m sorry for the loss of your mentor and friend.

      Thank you, Robin. It was such a shock to read of her sudden passing on Facebook today.
      The bird has adopted us. Comes every day with his mate. Thanks for dropping by and your lovely comment.

        I just read your About box. I think it is so cool that you created a new form of poetry. I love forms. I am learning to write free verse.

        Thanks for reading my About. Tercetonine is an easy form, unlike terza rima! I love form poetry too but when I have to deal with my immediate emotions, free verse suits me best.

  4. I am sorry for your loss, Irina. This tribute is beautiful for your friend. I am sure her spirit is all around you and this precious bird too xxoo

      Thank you, Christy. Yes, her spirit will stay with us forever. She always encouraged us to do better and I was just ready to have her look at one of my poems. In our Gather Group on FB tributes just keep coming. Thanks for your kind words. xxoo

    Excellent poem and tribute to your friend… I love this ending verse:
    “A dreamland where souls are free”. Hugs, dear Irina, Aquileana.

  6. I’m sorry for your loss, Irina and especially for one so young. Your tribute is lovely.
