Icarus Picture

From the classic Greek myth.

"...Still I, with feathered appendage aroused,
endeavored to climb the op'ning heavens
and spread each quill to scribe my name
on virgin parchments of sky

but found instead that waxen glories melt
in that singular moment
when ambitions close upon ideals too lofty
for mortality’s feeble frame.

So I fell steeply earthward without a scream."
