Pin It

Poem: The Base Jumper 

Doctor in his prime

Lying shattered at cliff's base

Mocked by tangled parachute


                                            Brilliant brain, still now

                                   Lover's shriek, canyon echoes

                                                The revenge of Icarus

  • A poem by Susan Sparrow.
