Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird
by Wallace Stevens (1879-1955)


Among twenty snowy mountains,
The only moving thing
Was the eye of the blackbird.

I was of three minds,
Like a tree
In which there are three blackbirds.

The blackbird whirled in the autumn winds.
It was a small part of the pantomime.


A man and a woman
Are one.
A man and a woman and a blackbird
Are one.

I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendoes,
The blackbird whistling
Or just after.


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.

O thin men of Haddam,
Why do you imagine golden birds?
Do you not see how the blackbird
Walks around the feet
Of the women about you?

I know noble accents
And lucid, inescapable rhythms;
But I know, too,
That the blackbird is involved
In what I know.


When the blackbird flew out of sight,
It marked the edge
Of one of many circles.

At the sight of blackbirds
Flying in a green light,
Even the bawds of euphony
Would cry out sharply

He rode over Connecticut
In a glass coach.
Once, a fear pierced him,
In that he mistook
The shadow of his equipage
For blackbirds.

The river is moving.
The blackbird must be flying.

It was evening all afternoon.
It was snowing
And it was going to snow.
The blackbird sat
In the cedar-limbs

  Maybe not blackbird but swan is the bird of Delta. And maybe there are a thousand ways to look at a bird. And there are thousands people who took a moment of respite to look at a blackbird. Or to listen to the song. Or to track the flight. Each with "noble accents" of own style. What remains is the truth.

    The truth is that we want to offer you unforgettable moments in a specially designed environment.

    We started with a poem because what you need is relaxation for reading lyrics. And then, when was the last time you read a poem?
    There are thirteen ways of looking at a blackbird, says the poet. Come in Delta, select ARCA and you will meet the professor Petrescu, who will show you many other ways to look at a blackbird in the Bird Watching program. Or a swan. Or a cormorant. You look through the professional lenses, and the professor will tell you what bird fly in formation of 'V' and in which days the yellow water lilies petals unfold..

    The youngest land of water is the gift that Danube made to the people in this Eastern part of Romania, where its flow has slowed and there where Danube is preparing for a meeting with the sea. Black Sea.
For over twenty years we are telling tourists the fishermen stories and spoil them with traditional dishes and seed unforgettable memories with them.

    Our guests find a welcoming and charming floating house. Moments spent on the boat are opportunities for relaxation and culinary delights of good taste. And good taste is in the details. From the harmony of colors in the paintings which decorate the house to the bright kitchen cleanliness or to the comfort loungers where we look at the sunrise glow.

    Choose this holiday in the Danube Delta, choose our offer for creativity and good taste.
And if you aren’t yet on holiday, choose Delta peace for the strategic thinking or for the next meeting with board members or with your international shareholders and offer them this program to know different Romania.

    ARCA team consists of professionals in the science and practice services.

    Select a week-end to paddle among willows, water lilies and reeds. Choose to relax in the pool listening to the waves of the Danube and Danube waltzes. Select English bar and library quiet after a day in speed boat cruising on channels. Select ARCA, a tasteful choice!

    For sure you will find your own way of looking at a blackbird!
