What is the allusion of this poem??

nothing prepares us for brilliant
entrance of creature of fantasy
or object of enchantment

useless to resist its allure
always takes unawares

drawn to its fiery nature
is instantly smitten

soul’s taken to pyre
heart reduces
to ashes:

hence Icarus’ fate
and the tale of Phoenix
