O' ICARUS!


O Icarus, hear your fathers cry!
Hear the warnings, do not fly so high!
The heavenly firmament you want to see…….
Alas, you want to know how a god can be……

You bask in the holy light of the day,
The divine light loosens your heart,
The wax and pinions are melting away,

You have reached the peak, you are the loftiest of all…..
How the mighty will fall…….

The water nymphs cradle the mortal body,
Tears fall, so much sorrow….
The father turns to the sky and wonders what glory his son did view
Ignore the warnings…. Of the old.

See the heavens and be oh so bold!
