The sky's color is worldly recognized

For this color, the Greeks didn't have a word
so how, you ask, did they characterize
Nouns such as the ocean or a bluebird?
Homer's "wine-dark sea" is one example
of the work-arounds and alternatives,
the substitutes for color are ample
with no desire to be conservative
You may also find that the Eckstus's book,
which emphasized these very same themes,
points out that Europe has a western look
and even color isn't what it seems
Consider a word of personal worth
may not exist in every place on earth
