This is just to say



Landcape with the Fall of Icarus

Willimas 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
unsignificantly


off the coast there was
a splash


quite unnoticed

this was Icarus drowning




Read the poem about the red wheelbarrow... HERE on my Wordpress-blog where you can find an image of the red wheelbarrow too. This link will open in a new window.
