恋と浄土の八重桜

ENG title: The Double-Flowered Cherry Tree of Love and Amitabha

We’ve long been waiting for a nimble, distant shower
In this season clad with the aroma of flowers
We’d surely notice a gentle storm of cherry blossoms
In this season adorned with a pale pink ambiance

While making my gait light, (Shoulder to shoulder with you,)
I spread out my hands (Under the night sky)
As we dwell on a poem, let’s make the sky bloom! (Yo~!)

Color is scattering about like scent (Hey!)
As time passes and passes, it reaches full bloom (More!)
Let’s dance all night, until daybreak
(If you won’t dance, too bad!)
Everyone’s world is surely growing endlessly (Yay!)
As you say “singing would be good” and laugh (More!)
Our waking dream, (Right now,)
Let us laugh at it

Softly, I hear the gentle sound of the wind
In this season drawing a growing future

The vividly painted (The end of the transient world)
Moonlit sky (Still cannot be seen)
Let your restrained feelings loose into the sky (Yo~!)

Color is scattering about like scent (Hey!)
What is “wishing” called in flower language, (Softly!)
I’ll have to think it over,
Even though I want to cry (If you won’t laugh, too bad!)
Everyone’s world has surely become permanent (Yay!)
Let’s sing, and pray, and laugh (More!)
Our waking dream, (Right now,)
Let us laugh at it

Even if one is struck by a rainfall of tears,
There’s a nostalgic place we can go home to, so,
The flower of your heart will fall into a whirling dance

Color is scattering about like scent (Hey!)
As time passes and passes, it reaches full bloom (More!)
Let’s dance all night, until daybreak
(If you won’t sing, too bad!)
Everyone’s world has surely become permanent (Yay!)
Let’s sing, and pray, and laugh (More!)
Our waking dream, (Right now,)
Let us laugh at it

(Yo~!)

  • kanji source
  • Amitabha in the title refers to this
  • i think 言ノ葉 refers to Waka, which lit. refers to Japanese-language poems, but is usually used to refer to tanka
