Erutan - Butterfly's Dream

Hana no ue ni
Nemuru kochou no
Hana no ue ni
Nemuru kochou no
No yume ni dani
Koyoi no ame wa
Shirazu ya aruran

Whispering from the sky
The raindrops fall tonight
Even this gentle cry
Stirs not the butterfly's dreaming
Streaming skies are breathing
Breathing into me
All the magic this night brings

Hana no ue ni
Nemuru kochou no
Hana no ue ni
Nemuru kochou no
No yume ni dani
Koyoi no ame wa
Shirazu ya aruran

Erutan ~ "In springtime, Japan gets a light delicate rain, so light (as the poet suggests) that even the butterflies might not know of it as it falls around them while they sleep. - This poem, 'Spring Rain' was written in the late 1800's by Court Lady Saisho Atsuko. The Wife of a samurai, she served the empress and empress dowadr in the Imperial Court in all literary affairs, and left behind a large number of her poems. I wrote the melody of this song to fit the beauty of the poem and attempt to capture in music the feeling of spring rain. The English lyrics are my take on the original translation."
