The Fall of Icarus by Peter Paul Rubens

The Fall of Icarus by Peter Paul Rubens


Twice he has nearly flown
Close to reaching heights
But the wind has cruelly blown
Taking his dreams from sight

Twice before he lived
So close to his dream
Much did it give
But not all was as it seemed

Wings been clipped times four
Singed closer to the sun
Like Icarus he fell, floored
Broken, but not had enough

He will rise again
Like the phoenix from the fire
All will be heaven sent
He can only reach higher

For he has the dreams of Icarus
and he won’t settle for less
