The Essence of the Color, the Color is Blue

The Color of Blue

Is the color of you,

The sky, the sea and little smurfs too.


It is Elvis suede shoes

And the ol' Memphis Blues

And the feeling of very bad news.


It is the berries in pies,

The first place prize,

and the color of Paul Newman's eyes.


It is the feeling of sad,

The absence of glad,

the feeling of Monday gone bad.


It is the blood of the king,

The Hope Diamond ring,

A song that Neil Diamond did sing.


It is the occasional moon,

A romantic lagoon,

And a catchy George Gershwin tune.


The essence of blue,

I'm sure you knew,

Is the color of my missing you.










The End
