According to Brueghel
when Icarus fell
it was spring
 
a farmer was ploughing
his field
the whole pageantry
 
of the year was
awake tingling
near
 
the edge of the sea
concerned
with itself
 
sweating in the sun
that melted
the wings’ wax
 
unsignificantly
off the coast
there was
 
a splash quite unnoticed
this was
Icarus drowning
