Blue Winter

Robert Francis

 Next Poem          

Winter uses all the blues there are.
One shade of blue for water, one for ice,
Another blue for shadows over snow.
The clear or cloudy sky uses blue twice-
Both different blues. And hills row after row
Are colored blue according to how for.
You know the bluejay's double-blur device
Shows best when there are no green leaves to show.
And Sirius is a winterbluegreen star.

    "Blue Winter" certainly makes one examine the multitude of blues that winter presents. It's impressive how it attributes different blues to different elements. What could the "winterbluegreen star" mentioned at the end represent though?
