Skywatching | Black Beauty | Enthralled

A lonely black beauty seen to be enthralled by the scene in front, while momentarily become oblivious to the impending darkness ahead in few moments.

    Excellent! Please read the following poem written by the late (famous) Wallace Stevens:

    THIRTEEN WAYS OF LOOKING AT A BLACKBIRD

    By Wallace Stevens

    1
    Among twenty snowy mountains
    The only moving thing
    Was the eye of the blackbird
    2
    I was of three minds,
    Like a tree
    In which there are three blackbirds.
    3
    The blackbird whirled in the autumn winds.
    It was a small part of the pantomime.
    4
    A man and a woman
    Are one.
    A man and a woman and a blackbird
    Are one.
    5
    I do not know which to prefer
    The beauty of inflections
    Or the beauty of innuendoes.
    The blackbird whistling
    Or just after.
    6
    Icicles filled the long window
    With barbaric glass
    The shadow of the blackbird
    Crossed it, to and fro.
    The mood
    Traced in the shadow
    An indecipherable cause.
    7
    O thin men of Haddam,
    Why to do you imagine golden birds?
    Do you not see how the blackbird
    Walks around the feet
    of the women about you?
    8
    I know noble accents
    And lucid, inescapable rhythms;
    But I know, too,
    That the blackbird is involved
    In what I know.
    9
    When the blackbird flew out of sight,
    It marked the edge
    Of one of many circles.
    10
    At the sight of blackbirds
    Flying in a green light,
    Even the bawds of euphony
    Would cry out sharply.
    11
    He rode over Connecticut
    In a glass coach.
    Once, a fear pierced him,
    In that he mistook
    The shadow of his equipage
    For blackbirds.
    12
    The river is moving.
    The blackbird must be flying.
    13
    It was evening all afternoon.
    It was snowing
    And it was going to snow.
    The blackbird sat
    In the cedar-limbs.
    1923
