Artist's Notes

THIRTEEN WAYS TO BLACKBIRD song lyrics 
by Joel Sattler 

based on "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird" 
BY WALLACE STEVENS 


Lyrics

there are thirteen ways to blackbird 
thirteen ways they say 
thirteen ways to blackbird 
every single day 

on 20 snowy mountains 
the only moving thing 
was the eye of blackbird 
underneath the wing 

I was of three minds, 
I was like a tree 
In which there are three blackbirds 
I myself and me 

The blackbird whirled around 
in the autumn winds 
a small part of the pantomime 
and so again begins 

13 ways to blackbird 
13 ways at least 
13 ways to blackbird 
to awake the beast 

A man and a woman 
Are even as one. 
A man a woman blackbird 
what is done is done 

don't know what I want 
the beauty of inflections 
or the blackbird whistling 
full of his suspections 

icicles in windows 
with barbaric glass 
the shadow of the blackbird 
questionable pass 

13 ways to blackbird 
13 ways I guess 
13 ways to blackbird 
good and better best 

O thin men of Haddam, 
Why the golden birds? 
Do you see the blackbird 
walking round the girls? 

I know noble accents 
beats you can't escape 
the blackbird is a part of 
everything I shape 

When the blackbird flew from sight, 
It marked the outer edge 
Of one of many circles 
of the bet I hedge 

13 ways to blackbird 
13 ways to live 
13 ways to blackbird 
never to forgive 

At the sight of blackbirds 
Flying in green light, 
Even bards of harmony 
cry out sharp at night 

riding over Connecticut 
in a coach of glass 
fear was overwhelming 
when the shadow passed 

The river moves along 
somewhere a child is crying 
a mother sings her song 
The blackbird must be flying. 

13 ways to blackbird 
13 ways to laugh 
13 ways to blackbird 
forever ever aft 

It was dusk all afternoon. 
It was snowing free 
And it was going to snow. 
The blackbirds sat in trees 

13 ways to blackbird 
13 ways to die 
13 ways to blackbird 
bye blackbird bye bye
