If Icarus Listened


If Icarus listened

To what his father said,

He could still be flying over the sea.

If Icarus followed his father’s path

Instead of straying too close to the sun,

He would be married with children.

Now he is resting at the bottom of the sea.

If Icarus listened

His beautiful feathers could still be used both day and night,

But now they float above the water

Fading slowly under the sea.

The End
