The garden of words (Tanka)

on Thu Jul 12, 2018 5:39 pm
なるかみの, すこしとよみて,
A faint clap of thunder,
さしくもり,
Clouded skies,
あめもふらぬか,
Perhaps rain will come.
きみをとどめむ?
If so, will you stay here with me?

なるかみの, すこしとよみて,
A faint clap of thunder,
ふらずとも,
Even if rain comes or not,
わはとどまらむ,
I will stay here,
いもしとどめば。
Together with you.

- Man'yōshū vol. 11, verse 2514 - 2513,
from the movie The Garden of Words -
