eleven horsemen
Eleven Horsemen
Shiki, Flores, Fields, Nose and Umeda
January 1-21, 2005

(1)
eleven horsemen 
riding through a night of swirling snow:
none looks to left or right
(Shiki=Stewart)

(2)
a dozen of tin soldiers
lining up on the oak shelf
(Flores)

(3)
rosy cheeks
under cherry blossoms
the first day in primary school
(Fields)

(4)
spring storm outside
what my college life will be
(Nose)

(5)
a hazy vernal moon
casting dim light
on hushed Nara temples
(fields)

(6)
tolls to bury bygones
what anew will they bring in?
(Umeda)

7)
out of a nunnery
in a surrey with the fringe
June in England
(flores)

(8)
my debut to the ball
who’ll try glass slippers on me?
(nose)

(9)
the days are getting short;
I stay alone counting
the time left for me
(fields)

(10)
three two one and here we go
let me see what space is like
(flores)

(11)
a jet contrail
tears blue sky in halves,
me, on the sunbaked beach
(nose)

(12)
a small fishing port at noon
old men shooting the breeze
(flores)



(13)
after many a stormy night
a morning calm and peaceful;
Eden
(fields)

(14)
leaves turn to yellow
crows hurry home
(nose)

(15)
the moon feigns coolness
envying changing dresses
of big sister Earth
(fields)

(16)
rainy mountains, dark and gray,
will soon be capped in white
(nose)

(17)
spring wind blows
through towns and fields,
unrolling fragrant carpets of flowers
(fields)

(18)
kids pose for daddys’ cameras
on commencement day
(nose)

(19)
a butterfly
fresh from its cocoon
on a clear day
(flores)

(20)
frogs listen to bush warblers' songs
while croaking in low tone
(fields)

(21)
while arguing
what to eat for lunch
I lost my wife in the crowd
(nose)

(22)
quo vadis Domine
solitude in the plaza
(flores)

(23)
my room is warm enough
with faint winter sunlight
where else would I go?
(fields)

(24)
remember the days you were
buried in the avalanche
(nose)

(25)
mi amor...
cante flamenco on the stage
a night in Sevilla
(flores)

(26)
greedy lover last night,
you left me alone in cold bed!
(fields)

(27)
a call from my daughter
Dad, I want you to meet someone,
it stunned me
(nose)

(28)
beyond the emerald green
a long line of whitecaps
(flores)

(29)
the moon and cosmoses
facing each other
in quiet rivalry
(fields)

(30)
on the table is a piece of Thanksgiving turkey,
no-one to share
(nose)

(31)
smoke floating in rain
from a stall at Shimbashi
a night in autumn
(flores)

(32)
it's easy to be happy
just come here and drink sake
(fields)

(33)
they say
there’s no place like home,
I know it’s damn right, but...
(nose)

(34)
how soothing is the spring wind
for a bit tipsy stroller
(flores)

(35)
crowded tunnel pink and white
on a riverbank
spring in Osaka
(fields)

(36)
old friends parted wishing
each other's happy returns of spring
(nose)


(chorus)
come again next morning
embracing a lute, if you like
(Li Po)
明朝有意抱琴来
(李白)
