  • The Flight of Icarus
  • BY Philbert Lacanlale
  • King Minos threw Daedalus and his son Icarus in a tower on a lonely island, never to leave. Daedalus, the creative builder that he was, never gave up. He said, "Minus may control the island, but he does not control the air. I will try that way."
  • They gathered all the feathers they could find. Then Daedalus got to work.
  • Icarus played while his father worked. Daedalus melted wax and placed down feathers in the shape of a bird's wings.
  • When the wings were finally made, Daedalus warned Icarus before they took flight. "Fly too close and the fog and ocean spray will clog your wings. Fly too high and the sun will melt your wings."
  • Icarus flew too high and the sun melted the wax. Icarus' wings fell apart, and he fell into the ocean. Daedalus was unable to save him.
