30poems – Day 26

I love the memories of poems as much as the words sometimes.  Being in high school with Mr. Hedlund at the helm of the Humanities class, linking Icarus to word, image, the feeling of freefall, the imagination of generations of teens ready, so ready to fly.

Others tell the story, too – and thanks to the poems, middle aged teachers and teenage students fly towards knowing something.  If only for a moment.
