Word-High July: Bughaw – The Colour Blue


I was once little boy blue,

I wear blue a lot

Jeans, shirts, jumpers

I was married in blue

Even fashionable platform shoes

That was in virginal 1975.

Today the sky is a brilliant blue

Most days it’s the same

It’s a warm blue

I see hope and a future

Despite the winter chill

Big woolly coats and ugh boots

The blue of the sky reminds me

The blues are no part of my day.
