tsuki ichirin tôko ichirin hikariau

the disk moon
the disk frozen lake
reflecting each other

kogarashi no hate wa arikeri umi no oto

bitter winter wind
ends there --
sound of the sea

ten mo chi mo nashi tada yuki no furishikiru

no sky
no land -- just
snow falling

hajimete no yuki yami ni furi yami ni yamu

first snow --
begins in the darkness
ends in the darkness

kogarashi no ima ya fukutomo chiru ha nashi

bitter winter wind --
blowing now
yet no leaves to drop

fuyunami wa sono kage no e ni kutsugaeru

winter waves
break and turn over
their own shadow
