Blues

Blue may differ in hue,
lightness or chroma
so to say you feel blue
is a miscoloured misnomer.

You may be the blue
of pantone two ninety-two
but perhaps another blueness
may give a better trueness
of your inner youness.

Like Sky or some shade
of Cerulean,
Pale OR Bright OR Frosted
to use logic
that’s Boolean.

You may prefer to sit
and contemplate your Navy
and other forms of Aquamarine power,
or pluck a blue from nature,
like Duck-egg or Cornflower.

For those that remain loyal
to the monarchy
you may feel Royal,
but if you’re a skeptic
or have tastes more ecletic,
like Bob, you might want
to go Electric.

Then there is Spanish, Prussian,
Egyptian and Persian;
that’s a lot of nationalities
in which to be a blue person.

Which blue hue is the true you
is not for me to tell.
Just do do the blue hue
that you do so well.

And if you’re not sure,
then there’s always Azure.

But there’s no blue
that seeps right through
more than the mournful
Monday Morning Blue.

so to say I feel blue

You may be the blue
of pantone two ninety two

may give a better trueness
of your inner youness.

Why not try sky,
some shade of Cerulean,
pale OR bright OR frosted
to use logic that’s Boolean.

Sit and contemplate your navy,
aquamarine forms of sea power,
or pluck blues out of nature,
like duck-egg or cornflower.

For those that remain loyal
then, of course, there is royal,
but if you remain skeptic
or have tastes more eclectic,
like Bob, you might consider
going electric.

Then there is Spanish, Prussian,
Egyptian and Persian;
that’s a lot of nationalities
of which blue has a version.

Which blue hue is the true you
is not for me to tell.
Just do do the blue hue
that you do so well.

there’s always azure.
