Epistle to Daedalus - Fiama Hasse Pais Brandão

Why you gave to your son plumage wax wings
if the powerfull sun at the sky would undo them?
It did not hear me, so far, however I thought I said:
all the sons are Icarus, who will die in the sea.
Later they return, prodigal, to the love between the blood
of what they were and of what they are now, sons of the sons.

Fiama Hasse Pais Brandão (1938 - 2007) Portugal
Translated by Isaac Pereira
