A man and a woman and a blackbird are one.


 
I
"Among twenty snowy mountains,
The only moving thing
Was the eye of the blackbird."
IV
"A man and a woman
Are one,
A man and a woman and a blackbird
Are one."
—Wallace Stevens, Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird

This is one of my all time favorite poems. Wallace Stevens had a neat way of seeing things. I love the sketch too.
