We filter our way to the world

For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a pair of spectacles to which a pair of rose-colored clip-on attachment is affixed. You can see a view of skyline near a shore through these colored clip-ons.

We filter our way to the world

Rose coloured spectacles

Cracking the shimmer as we hurled

Sigh as events occur

Reach for triumph no matter what

And what we don’t like we shut

Reach for triumph

Reach for triumph

Some moments not caught in a rut

We filter our way to the world

Some things are left undone

Revealing what life has unfurled

And we want to have won

No matter what we make the most

What we’ve achieved we give a toast

No matter what

No matter what

Experiences we’ve learned from notes

We filter our way to the world

Everyone has their way

Expansive or simple we curled

Choose how we spend our day

Rose coloured world as we see fit

And as long as we do not quit

Rose coloured world

Rose coloured world

What we do we have to commit*

  • 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
