小鳥の歌 1

平成二十八年九月一日
A sparrow singing
Amidst the cicadas’ cries
Welcoming twilight
Winds in the east, mist rising
Future mirroring the past

Notes:
Birdsong will be a continued theme
Cicadas’ cries mark the end of summer and the beginning of autumn
They are loudest at twilight, but also, they sing as they die, as the summer dies
The last two lines call back to “Winds in the East” from Mary Poppins (lyrics by Robert and Richard Sherman)

“Winds in the east, mist comin’ in
Like somethin’ is brewin’, about to begin.
Can’t put me finger on what lies in store,
But I feel what’s to happen all happened before.”
