Around existence twine, (Oh, bridge that hangs across the gorge!) ropes of twisted vine.
Contributed by: Zaady
Now the swinging bridge Is quieted with creepers ... Like our tendrilled life.
From all these trees, in the salads, the soup, everywhere, cherry blossoms fall.
O cricket from your cherry cry No one would ever guess How quickly you must die.
Clapping my hands with the echoes the summer moon begins to dawn.
