Landscape With The Fall Of Icarus Poem by William Carlos Williams

Landscape With The Fall Of Icarus

Rating: 2.9


According to Brueghel
when Icarus fell
it was spring

a farmer was ploughing
his field
the whole pageantry

of the year was
awake tingling
near

the edge of the sea
concerned
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

I think this was so bad and this is my opinon because I think that the thing that I do not know what we are talking about is totally ugly.
