Today's Quote

To A Friend Whose Work Has Come To Triumph"Consider Icarus, pasting those sticky wintgs on,testing that strange little tug at his shoulder blade,and think of that first flawless moment over the lawnof the labyrinth. Think of the difference it made!There below are the trees, as awkward as camels;and here are the shocked starlings pumping pastand think of innocent Icarus who is doing quite well:larger than a sail, over the fog and the blastof the plushy ocean, he goes. Admire his wings!Feel the fire at his neck and see how casuallyhe glances up and is caught, wondrously tunnelinginto that hot eye. Who cares that feel back to the sea?See him acclaiming the sun and come plunging downwhile his sensible daddy goes straight into town."
