Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Art & Environment

Today's poem includes two poems about the well-known painting by Pieter BrueghelThe Fall of Icarus.

These are but two of several poems about this painting but these two are often found referenced to the other.

There is a small image of the painting with the link to the Auden poem, Musee des Belles Arts. The link to The Fall of Icarus above has a much enlarged painting as well as an extensive explanation about it.

For information about the Greek myth of Icarus this one is divided into short sections where you can learn about events leading up to the fall to Icarus's  drowning.
