National Poetry Month: Poem #2

The Fall of Icarus by Bruehgal
Landscape with the Fall of Icarus
William Carlos Williams 

According to Brueghel
when Icarus fell
it was spring 
a farmer was ploughing
his field
the whole pageantry 

of the year was
awake tingling
with itself 

sweating in the sun
that melted
the wings' wax 

off the coast
there was 

a splash quite unnoticed
this was
Icarus drowning 

 William Carlos Williams


Jim Henson's The Storyteller Daedalus and Icarus
