ICARUS

You,
winged as an angel
proudly flew up higher and high
as a god you chase the infinite skies.
Free and fast along the clouds
you wanted to touch the immortal empires
laughing at the stars so long envied.


Too bold became your mortal egotism
and unfaithfull were indeed, your fatal wings
as a fallen angel you fell on the sea
leaving the wide ocean tolling your echoing knell.
