Blue and yellow , New year's sky ?

David English
a made-to-order pale blue...the year's first sky

sakuo's Japanese
aturae no tosi no hatu sora usuao si
誂えの 年の初空 薄青し

Issa's original
aturae no tooriasagi no hatu zora zo
誂えの 通り浅黄の はつ空ぞ

Then question?
Is new year's sky blue or yellow ?
At this New year Issa was sick on his journey without backing to homevillage.
He was so gloomy that he would see the sky to be yellow.
