wind water earth sky - all things remain the same
for our Lord in heaven above we are but a game
He tests us at every step if we fail
not He but we're ourselves to blame
all day the devotees throng His shrine
chanting His name spreading His fame
desires they've sown for ages in their hearts
if they don't sprout won't it be His shame?
deaf He may be to my pleas, uni,
don't think on His love i'll forego my claim.
fog in the valley~
trees and mountains recede
the dawn's draped in fog,
the pheasant forgets to sing~
where are you, O sun?
the sun-god at last
felling fog with his arrows -
trees and hills appear.
