    WINGS
    Feathers
    Tools of flight

    Icarus did try
    But found out the hard way
    As the wax melted and he fell

    “It takes more than wings to reach God.”

    Dear Scott,

    This is awesome, and is the first poem I have read about Icarus...:bravothanx:. I believe the Clarity was the perfect choice for this poem as well. I remember him flying too close to the Sun, and his artificial wings melting, yes. That last line stands out and is a brilliant pinnacle of the piece. Masterfully done Scott! Excellent rating as well!
