I. Daedalus II. Icarus III. Memory of Suns.

It is thanks to the peerless stars
That flame in the depth of the sky
That my burned out eyes see
Only the memories of suns.

- Baudelaire, Les Plaintes d'un Icare.

Memorial to my Father

Hamlet IV, Scene V.

Ophelia: There's rosemary, that's for remembrance; pray, love, remember...
I would give you some violets, but they withered all when my father died:
they say he made a good end.
