“Shrewsbury River” by John Frederick Kensett (1816-1872)‘Defining Blue’ by Geoffrey Pippin The Society August 24, 2016 Beauty, Poetry Capturing all that isn’t blue, The sky, extending out of view, Pitches over the gathered green, Its grassy sheen Draped, reflected, along the hills, While quietly its wideness spills Wider, as if its breadth defined The limit of the viewer’s mind, As if it flew In chase of its reflected hues, Whether robed in red or washed in gold, Colored by what it cannot hold.
