Like Ikarus she flew way up high in the sky.
She chased the wind and the stars at night
Unfazed, she saw the heavens ablaze
Some say her laughter sounded like silver bells.
But, she ignored the warning signs,
Trusted somebody else.
She risked it all for a stunning and fast fall.
A child looked up and pulling his mother's hand,
He said: "Look, mom, a shooting star!"
