One love per annum

On this day the yellow flowers bloom

The sun still shines after a million years

Our eyes are sparkling and not shedding tears

The world is so bright; there’s no place for gloom

One may ask me why these things happen.

What a lovely year for us it has been!


One year has passed when I heard you say “Yes”

The memory is like a green apple –

Fresh! In my mind I can clearly recall

Our dialogue later leading to bliss.

‘Twas the beginning of my life complete

Together with a girl nicknamed “Entet.”


My love for you is like an interest

You are the rate; I am the principal

After a year I make a withdrawal

For one love per annum – it is the best!

Even your amount remains the same

I will increase mine, so we shall still gain.


Happy anniversary, dear Princess!

The sun still shines; the yellow flowers bloom

For what are they doing that and to whom?

Every mind filled with love must never guess,

For surely the world knows it is our day

For one love per annum, so we must pay.


I hope that our love will be like trees

Evergreen and strong despite drought and storm,

Giving the world fresh air and cozy home,

Lasting not for short but for centuries

My love for you is like the green, green leaves

While there is plant around my love still lives.


To Princess
