Daedalus And Icarus

Modern Day Daedelus And Icarus Enjoying An Afternoon Flight

Locked in a tower for his labyrinthian creation
King Minos’ cunning to keep his labyrinth secret
To free himself and his son from this submission
Daedalus contrived an aerial plan on the quiet

Wings of a bird from feathers, strings and wax
Out of the labyrinth they flew towards the sky
Flapping their wings in freedom’s track
Daedalus had warned Icarus from flying too high

Alas, the boy, forgetting his father’s advice
Began to soar toward the sun so high
The wax softened under the blazing sun
Feathers came undone
Icarus fell to the sea and drowned
Daedelus cried bitterly, lament of a son lost profound

    • thank you very much, earl.
      yes, the poem is an original.
      i am not good at it (like the one here, i think the last stanza needs more work) , but at times, a concept or an idea comes to mind, and I try to put this down as best as i can.
      have a good weekend.
      best regards, ken
