Who shouted with glee when the colour blue was born?
Quiénes gritaron de alegría cuando nació el color azul?
~ Pablo Neruda from “The book of questions”
I born blue? water babies hesitant to exchange cry in the gasping air a while then laugh II then laugh merry bellied like painters in cobalt drenching skies once barely coated lapis III lapis entombed heaven when angels dropped to earth now men retrieve these holy spoils with glee IV with glee then why cry blues? through indigo we slip to black but seeing midnight stars sing low V sing low the dead poet his mother tongue of odes mystery bathed and surely once born blue
