人知れず咲いた花 愛でる様な
おぼろげな感覚が身にしみて

hito shirezu saita hana mederu you na
oboroge na kankaku ga mi ni shimite

It was as if I loved the flowers that bloomed, unknown to all.
This hazy sensation sinks into my mind.

寂しさを紛らわす口笛が
遠い空へ響いた

samishisa o magirawasu kuchibue ga
tooi sora e hibiita

My whistling, which diverts me from my loneliness,
Echoed to the distant sky.

あてもなく彷徨える 幾千の花弁は
いずれ朽ち枯れ果てて それは美しく散る

ate mo naku samayoeru ikusen no hanabira wa
izure kuchi kare hatete sore wa utsukushiku chiru

I wander aimlessly. Thousands of petals
will someday wither. They will scatter beautifully.

思い出と呼べそうなものもなく
薄れた日々重なる

omoide to yobesou na mono mo naku
usureta hibi kasanaru

I can’t seem to call those dim days memories.
They come one after another.

蒼い月目指しては 風に乗る花弁が
いつか見たあの空へ それは美しく散る

aoi tsuki mezashite wa kaze ni noru hanabira ga
itsuka mita ano sora e sore wa utsukushiku chiru

The petals ride the wind and aim for the blue moon.
They head to the sky I once saw. They will scatter beautifully.

あてもなく彷徨える 幾千の花びらは
いずれ朽ち枯れ果てて それは美しく散る

ate mo naku samayoeru ikusen no hanabira wa
izure kuchi kare hatete sore wa utsukushiku chiru

I wander aimlessly. Thousands of petals
will someday wither. They will scatter beautifully.

    Hey, the official site link should go to https://www.melonbooks.co.jp/special/b/0/fair_dojin/20181229_touhousuiseisou2/ (which is missing the /sp.html at the end).

    The one you currently have is only meant for mobile devices, so it looks terrible on a desktop; the link I have above works for both.

    (Semi-technical explanation: Modern sites have a “responsive design”, which is just one page that changes in appearance depending on your browser’s width. However, Melonbooks is a bit behind on the times, so they instead have two different pages—desktop and mobile—and only one of them checks your device in order to redirect you to the right page. Thanks to Violet for pointing me to the right place.)
