W.H. Auden

In Breughel’s Icarus, for instance : how everything turns away
Quite leisurely from the disaster ; the ploughman may
Have heard the splash, the forsaken cry,
But for him it was not an important failure ; the sun shone
As it had to on the white legs disappearing into the green
Water, and the expensive delicate ship that must have seen
Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky,
Had somewhere to get to and sailed calmly on.
