An Anaphora and Sestet stanzas poem

Revised on 6/19/2019 and Final revision on 7/8/2019

Blue, the jeans, of a hard working Father.
Blue suits that exudes ownership and leadership.  
Bible, “at around God’s throne is like a sapphire Blue.”
The first Heaven seen above, notably is sky Blue. 
The “Medal of honor;” Blue, represents: 
Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice.

All of which a very good Father should acquire. 
True Blue, should be known of all loving Fathers. 
Exiguous Father's explored and navigated as a sailor.
A nautical traverse was done over deep Blue seas. 
Men then and men now fulfilling their family's needs.  
A Father's commissioned service sacrifice deeds.

Lapis, Sapphire, Turquoise, Navy and Sky Blue.
These colors of a Father's flag, forever, flying, free. 
And, also wearing proudly on both Blue arm selves. 
Holding his baby boy or girl, for their first milk feed.
A new Father's life, that is now much more real.
"True Blue," the most zealous zeal.

I've seen blues that had less than zealous zeal so I'm with you on this one

Blue would be on American flag, And red and white as it did sag; Stars white, To our delight; Much about it we had to brag. Jim Horn
