What She Said -

Kuruntokai 228

In his country of cool seas, they say,

on the screwpines with hanging roots
fat buds unfold
in leaves
like the wingfeathers
herons preen with their beaks,

and on the front yards
of his little seaside town
set in a grove,
the long waves come and go.

Though he has left
he is close to my heart,
living far away

in his country of cool seas.
