In honour of our love, a tree
Take it as a bouquet
A sign to interpret for thee
Tassel to make your day
Orange line that says I love you
I am the speaker so it’s true
Orange line that says
Orange line that says
Together we see the tree grew

In honour of our love, a tree
Billboard of our love
With the sound of a drum with glee
Like cooing of a dove
Everything’s nice and romantic
We make it work as well as click
Everything’s nice
Everything’s nice
The fruit of the tree we can pick

In honour of our love, a tree
We see from the window
From flower to flower the bee
Sucking the nectar so
As the tree blooms and so as we
We appreciate the tree’s beauty
As the tree blooms
As the tree blooms
And we go through life breezily*

* The Trijan Refrain, created by Jan Turner, consists of three 9-line stanzas, for a total of 27 lines. Line 1 is the same in all three stanzas, although a variation of the form is not to repeat the same line at the beginning of each stanza. In other words, the beginning line of each stanza can be different. The first four syllables of line 5 in each stanza are repeated as the double-refrain for lines 7 and 8. The Trijan Refrain is a rhyming poem with a set meter and rhyme scheme as follows:

Rhyme scheme: a/b/a/b/c/c/d,d refrain of first 4 words of line five /c

Meter: 8/6/8/6/8/8/4,4 refrain/8

  1. I like this idea of a tree in honor of love because a tree is something that continues to grow and, if it’s a fruit tree, can also just keep on giving sweetness. And, isn’t that what we all want love to do, too? 🙂
