Bobbing blue
Favorite flower
Dresden hue

Sky blue
Williamsburg Blue
Blue as your eyes
Blue as china

Fleeting as a summer day
I cannot capture it

Cannot put it in a vase
or it wilts
Cannot pick it
or it dies
Cannot transplant it
or it won’t take
Not pretty to look at
if you look it straight

Beautiful only
if you walk by
Blue blur
Blue blaze
Out of the corner
Of your eye
