The thread of life so confusing

Which way to the doorway?

Some message keep on diffusing

Sometimes going astray

Reflect and savour fun living

Some reasons to be forgiving

Reflect and savour

Reflect and savour

Be grateful for it’s Thanksgiving

The thread of life so confusing

Which way to go and how?

Bludgeon with nothing perusing

Nothing to prove allow

Goddess help me for I am lost

Don’t be so crossed, I am in frost

Goddess help me

Goddess help me

Hindrances and I am exhaust

The thread of life so confusing

I need some catalyst

Different ways all for my using

Best to have strategist

Being lost is fun sometimes, too

I can enjoy the coffee brew

Being lost is fun

Being lost is fun

Hear the birds sing and the cow moo*

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
