10 Days of Heat: Best summer memory (Day 9)

Day-9-2017

Chill on the best summer ever
Sand, sea, sun and cool drinks
Swim with friends in the cool azure
Singing fun songs in syncs
Long days, short nights and the warm breeze
Cooling under the shade of trees
Long days, short nights
Long days, short nights
Don’t want this to end, one agrees

Chill on the best summer ever
It’s the smile and the kiss
Happy to share with our laughter
Watch the sunset, such bliss
I’m just here, counting my blessing
Picking up flowers and biking
I am just here
I am just here
In the sea swimming and diving

Chill on the best summer ever
Don’t let the colours fade
Because I am such a dreamer
The waves are like cascade
Footprints in the sand and all marks
Listen to the songs of skylarks
Footprints in the sand
Footprints in the sand
Walk hand in hand along some parks*

* 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
