    Lyrics

    There is a bamboo tree that blooms only once in a hundred years
    This is the year, your wedding year
    And the bamboo blossoms just for you

    For you the Columbine is blue
    The paint brush flames upon the hills
    For Allison and Denver John
    A double sunrise lights the dawn

    I've watched you blossom since you met
    You've made a garden out of love
    With splendid flowers and bowered paths
    Where I am satisfied to walk

    There was a thorn in Denver's side
    That Allison has pruned and clipped
    A sorrow Allison could hide
    That Denver soothed and comforted

    Each tending to the others need
    Tears and smiles looked after now
    The thorns and sorrows have their place
    In proper balance, like the stars

    You are both brave and beautiful
    My brother, whom I've loved for life
    And now a sister, newly mine
    To love and treasure day and night

    Home to the mountains, then, we come
    To celebrate in unison
    All peace, and pleasure, joy and bliss
    To Denver John and Allison

    Today for you the Columbine is blue
    The paint brush flames upon the hills
    For Allison and Denver John
    A double sunrise lights the dawn
