And The Farmer Continues To Plow

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

And with that, I have thrown myself back into writing a full feature screenplay. Yes, that poem is somehow relevant to the plot.
