each a heart


This is a horizontal rectangular composition with a large orange oval in the bottom third of the composition and an orange circular shape in the top right quadrant. Surrounding these shapes are bands of yellow along with other orange, blue, green, and yellow markings in the top left quadrant. Within each orange shape is stanza XIV of the poem "Before the Flowers of Friendship Faded Friendship Faded" by Gertrude Stein written in white script.
inscribed: it could be seen very nicely / that doves have each a [heart shape], / each one is always seeing / that they could not be apart, / A little lake makes fountains / And fountains / have no flow. / And a dove has need of flying [plus sign] / And water can be low, / Let me go. / Any week is what they seek / when they have to halve a beak. / I like a painting on a wall of doves / And what do they do, / They have hearts / They are apart / Little doves are winsome / But not / when they are little / and left. G.S.
