1.    You asked me to do it in the hue called blue

2.    A color considered trustworthy, harmonious and cool

3.    Who wouldn’t first think Die Grossen Blauen Pferde, Large Blue Horses by Franz Marc?

4.    Ancient Egyptians concocted a hot brew of lime and copper to make the first blue

5.    Without the word for blue, Homer called the sea wine-red

6.    Ultramarine – beyond the sea

7.    Blue paint was only for Mary and royalty

8.    Artists ground and ground their precious Lapis Lazuli,

9.    a blue too expensive for Michelangelo, a cause of financial debt for Vermeer

10.    China held the secret with cobalt on their porcelain,

11.    then a leafy little plant in Japan gave birth to indigo

12.    a sharecropper’s color and the birth of the blues

I never felt more like singing its hues

Many thanks to our juror, Jen Tough
