SONNET: When You Arrive Anywhere Dressed in Blue

When you arrive anywhere dressed in blue,
it is as if the sky walks amongst us.
Why once, to a gloomy ghost town, you came,
in an outfit which was far from subtle.
The fabric that you wore was bold azure.
After moments with you, none could be sad.
Gratitude at tea time reached greater heights,
and conversations were raised to upbeat.

You can act as if you do not know this.
You can act as if you are less -- in blue.
Yet deep down we know you and blue are strong,
a pairing miraculous in nature.
When you are dressed in blue you are the sky,
the guarantor of good feelings and smiles.
