Re: query: serenity and trinity
Did your Googling turn up Trinity Spire and Serenity Spire, not
far from each other in the Alaska range?
An anerotic echo of Sex Rouge and Sex Noir?

The two words might be accepted as a rhyme (cf. Swinburne's
ever-never-river, and there are probably closer examples).
Maybe in some undergraduate light verse or song? I'm tempted
to make up a limerick: There once was a Fellow of Trinity/
Who said women disturbed his serinity...

I'm not convincing myself, though.
