Sugawara Takesue no Musume

(1009 - 1070 / Japan)

I Yearn For A Tranquil Moment


I yearn for a tranquil moment
To be out upon the sea of harmony,
In that enchanted boat.
Oh, boatman, do you know my heart?

    But which wave will carry your heart and to which shore must you depart. In the enchantment you are both the boatman and the heart, the sea and the part of a forlorn lover seeking the supreme bliss. Enjoyed the read. Baru Gobira (Report) Reply
