Books and Art Excercise 1 Week 1

Landscape With The Fall of Icarus
by William Carlos Williams
According to Brueghel
when Icarus fell
it was spring
a farmer was ploughing
his field
the whole pageantry
of the year was
awake tingling
the edge of the sea
with itself
sweating in the sun
that melted
the wings' wax
off the coast
there was
a splash quite unnoticed
this was
Icarus drowning

Here is a nice poem by William Carlos Williams which I would like to share. I propose to share poems and comments on art and literature on my blog.
