Great makings, Changdeokgung Palace, Seoul, South Korea
予もいづれの年よりか There came a time when
片雲の風にさそはれて invited by drifting clouds
漂泊の思ひやまず I set off on a journey
海浜にさすらへ to wander along the seashores 芭蕉

一筋の光 edit

一筋の光を信じてみるの? Will you try to believe in a ray of light?
それとも暗闇に怯えるの? Or will you quiver in darkness?
いつかは皆旅立つ Someday everybody sets out on a journey
その日がきっと来るね That day will definitely come
全てを捨ててもいい程 It will be OK to throw it all away
これから始まって行く物語は The story that begins now
不安と希望に満ちてる‥ Is filled with uncertainty and hope... あゆ
