Icarus is falling

The farmer ploughs land with horse
And shepherd tends innocent sheep.
Sun shines brightly on falling bodies.

We open window to find him falling
And farmer’s horse still furloughing.
It is a fine spring day and a calm sea.

(“ The Fall of Icarus” A landscape painting by Pieter Brueghel)
