Blue Blurb


The jackets of books are designed to tease.
'Not too much information, please!'
Take the jacket above........ the blue is cool;
But titillation is the rule.
The figure doesn't show its face;
Is the lady shy or in disgrace?
The title is a mystery;
'Blue' is calm, it seems to me.
But 'fire' is hot, suggesting amour
 But it's a forbidden love, for sure.
Is the lady a Nun? Has she turned away? 
Is she mounting the steps to a Church to pray?
Which brings me to the subject of sin!
Oh dear! What mess is the lady in?
It's more intriguing the more I look!
I'll simply have to buy the book!

(An Acrostic suggested by Acrostics Only)

What shall I wish for? What do I need?
I'll blow on this dandelion seed.
See the umbrellas float on air!
Happy wishes float everywhere!
