One Of 13 Markers Honoring Poet Wallace Stevens

The poem -- and the walk -- begins: "Among twenty snowy mountains, The only moving thing Was the eye of the blackbird." This verse from "Thirteen Ways of Looking At A Blackbird" is the first of 13 stones erected between poet Wallace Stevens' workplace at the Hartford Accident and Indemnity Co. on Asylum Avenue in Hartford and his home on Westerly Terrace in the city's West End.
