Blue! — 'Tis the life of heaven — the domain
Blue! 'Tis the life of heaven, — the domain
The tent of Hesperus, and all his train,
The bosomer of clouds, gold, grey and dun.
Blue! 'Tis the life of waters — Ocean
And all its vassal streams pools numberless
May rage, and foam, and fret, but never can
Subside, if not to dark-blue nativeness.
Blue! gentle cousin of the forest-green,
Married to green in all the sweetest flowers,
Forget-me-not, the blue bell, and, that queen
Of secrecy, the violet What strange powers
Hast thou, as a mere shadow! But how great,
When in an eye thou art alive with fate!
John Keats
