Λοιπόν ελέφαντα
γιατί την γκρέμισες
την ακακία;

Προεόρτια της του Αγίου Καζούκι Γεννήσεως - 16 Φεβ 1950

Kigi wa Haru (Trees are spring itself), Kazuki Tomokawa, (1981)

(Spring is in the trees: Very rough translation by choan 1970; 7 Jan 2012, 13:19)

Flocking together in the blue sky
All you dissolute men
How thin and pale your adam’s apples
Now
Talk your never-ending chatter
You look like you’ll talk of the breast’s sadness

Sea is silent, souls are sick
People are weary, spring is in the trees

Though I shout out
No one replies
I thought no one was home, but they were
Bright and so fresh
See you do not become heartbroken
No one there, nothing to do but pray

End of the road, smell of the earth
Wind dies away, spring is in the trees

In the backbone of the old man
Buying a lottery ticket
A certain chilling earnestness
Just like
My own arrogance
Meager and nostalgic

Rusted dreams, the snow is petals
Brushing aside today, spring is in the trees
Those that depart, those that stay
Gales and thunder, spring is in the trees
