Frozen dew

In November wind

The leaves start turning red

Fall in the luminous Manjushage

Faint rustling the silky wrap

Stroke fragile petals of Manjushage

Trembling under the Narra tree

Then sing funereal hymn

“The promise was kept flowing

From upstream to downstream

If you’re stranded at sea

Or lying in dry grassland

With arrows or a sword through the skin

I’ll keep waiting in Momiji 

Under the Narra tree

Lulled the fragrant of Manjusage”

manjushage: red spider lily (means: Never to meet again/Lost memory/Abandonment)

narra tree : pohon Angsana

Momiji: warna kemerah-merahan,
