Icarus, Revisited

“He who dared to fly
With wings of wax,” Helios laughed,
“Shall be set alight”.

“I will rise above clouds,”
The boy said with wings outstretched,
“And make Heaven proud”.

“No more earthly chains,”
As pride lifted his feathers.
“Life won’t be the same.”

Icarus tried, true,
Ascended and fell, yet he
Showed what man can do.

A hero’s release
Of deeds successfully failed.
To dare is to dream.
