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

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.
