Icarus (1994)

Yes, it’s true, he fell.
But that he tried——-Nay!
Gave his all!——
His new knowledge,
His life’s strength,
His whole will, till——
“Up, Icarus, up!”——
His self-made, self-said name
On righting wings of pride
Soared up through the centuries!
Yea! e’en now I hear it,
“Up, Icarus, up!”

  1. Opus Dei says:

    Such a joyous spirit! Yes, even I say: “Up, Icarus, up!” I heart it!

  2. Yes, Opus, you are rising, too.
