The new year's dawn,
The same sun rose as before
But, how divinely!

Swinging at the cold rope's end
Saddam could not see the light

Onto chilly streets
A subway exit spits out
Pale officegoers endlessly

The hot roof of a mosque

Dogs wake up sheep
Women make up kitchen fire
The moon about to fade in the sky

as a short day is breaking
spouting whales are to be seen

In a vast cornfield
The cobs and leaves tremble
In the autumn wind

Who used to play hide and seek

Here I find your legs
Fair and slender without shoes

Sober up my friend
You are dreaming a daydream

Step aside my lord
When the spring sun embraces
Me and the barrel

On the mound is Chiristmas rose

On a bald mountain
A flash of hope through cold air
Day begins to break

Look, my son just began toddling
Spring is around the corner

TV is showing
Crowds in Kairakuen garden,
My wife and I sip hot chocolate

Memories dissolve into
The dark brown of bitterness

No word of consolation
Nor a dose of medicine
Can cure my broken heart

A glass of wine in your hand
An autumn song on your lips

All wearing black backpacks
Looking up at red leaves

Over boughs to the pale moon

Stood beside a bonfire
Chilly morning in dead silence

Clouds won't hide the sun
Blue sea of Hawaii trembles
On this wedding day

You’ve just come out of ripples
Alohaino to you

To the nests in the woods
A break from work for the day

The sun also rises soon

Since I stopped dreaming a dream
A knock on the door

Before an ancient castle
In a bare mountain

As young leaves cover the field

The mayflower drifts
To the discovered land
The moon is rising

Dolphins are jumping around us
Claiming the ocean is theirs
