歌詞

縹(ハナダ)の空に 雲ひとつ
静かに 流れ 微睡む

過ぎゆく季節 追いかけ
揺蕩(タダヨ)ひ 揺蕩ひて
敢(ア)へ無く 消ゆる

山路の奥に 今はなき
兵(ツワモノ)達の 夢の跡

訪ねる者は いずこ
覚ゆる者も いずこ

あはれ
咲いては散る 花片(ハナビラ)よ
誰の手向けへと 積もる
過ぎし戦跡(イクサアト)の 野辺を
朱く 染めて

蜩唱(ヒグラシウタ)う 夕間暮れ
茜に雲を 染めゆく
かなかなと 夏の終わりを
侘び鳴きて 切なに響く

秋の山路 色なき風に
ゆらりゆれて 物憂げに
往きて尽きた 誰をとぶらい
燃ゆるは 曼珠沙華

さらば
咲いては散る 花片よ
誰の手向けへと 集う
夜の随(マニマ)に 浮かびては
夢のごとく

Romanisation

hanada no sora ni kumo hitotsu
shizuka ni nagare madoromu

sugi yuku kisetsu oi kake
tadayoi tadayoite
ae naku kiyuru

yamaji no oku ni ima wa naki
tsuwamono-tachi no yume no ato

tazuneru mono wa izuko
oboyuru mono mo izuko

aware
saite wa chiru hanabira yo
dare no tamuke e to tsumoru
sugishi ikusaato no nobe o
akaku somete

higurashi utau yuumagure
akane ni kumo o some yuku
kana kana to natsu no owari o
wabi nakite setsuna ni hibiku

aki no yamaji iro naki kaze ni
yurari yurete monouge ni
ikite tsukita dare o toburai
moyuru wa manjushage

saraba
saite wa chiru hanabira yo
dare no tamuke e to tsudou
yoru no manima ni ukabite wa
yume no gotoku

Translation

A single cloud is in the light indigo sky.
It drifts silently, and I doze off.

It chases the passing seasons,
drifting and swaying…
How sad, the cloud vanishes.

They passed away deep inside the mountain path.
This is the ruin of the soldiers’ dreams.

Where are the visitors?
Where are those who remember?

Alas,
the petals blossom then fall.
They pile up in offering to someone long gone,
dying the fields of past battles
the colour of blood.

The cicadas cry at twilight
while the clouds turn madder red.
Their buzzing cries mourn the end of summer,
echoing for a moment.

The red spider lilies look ablaze
mourning for someone long gone.
They sway listlessly in the colourless wind
upon the autumnal mountain path.

Farewell.
The petals blossom then fall.
They gather as an offering to someone long gone.
They drift at night’s mercy
like a dream.
