He opens his poem with this rhetorical question "Why make so much of
fragmentarty blue?" Why are we attracted to this such color when we see it
in butterflies and birds ect.
"when heaven presents in sheets the solid hue?" The sky above us is blue.
As Frost goes on through his poem he is suggesting that the sky is freedom
and peace that everyone longs for when they pass. When we think of our
dreamlike desires we think of the blue sky and clouds. Blue is also the
color of relaxation and dreamlike desires.
