Natsu wa kinu

u no hana no niou kakine ni
hototogisu hayamo ki nakite
shinobine morasu natsu wa kinu

samidare no sosogu yamada ni
saotome* ga mosuso nurashite
tamanae uuru natsu wa kinu

tachibana no kaoru nokiba no
mado chikaku hotaru tobikai
okotari isamuru natsu wa kinu

ouchi chiru kawabe no yado no
kado tooku kuina koe shite
yuuzuki koishiki natsu wa kinu

satsuki yami hotaru tobikai
kuina naki unohana sakite
sanae uewatasu natsu wa kinu

Summer has come

In the fence where flowers of deutzia smell
Lesser Cuckoo is already coming and ringing
Make a small noise even if it keep quiet
summer has come

At rain in May is falling on mountain rice fields
Maidens who plant rice wet the hem of their clothes
Planting a seedling entrusted by God
summer has come

At the end of the eaves that Citrus tachibana smells
By the Window,Fireflies are flying
I forgive you not to be lazy
summer has come

In the lodge of the river where the chinaberry is scattered
Singing voice of Rallus aquaticus in the other side of the gate
I can not wait for the evening moon
summer has come

May rains stopped,and Fireflies flew over after
Rallus aquaticus is sing,flowers of deutzia is blooming
Hurry and plant seedlings in the rice fields
summer has come
