COMPOSITION

April 26 2020

 

   作曲


まだみたことのない
森の
空気を しずかにすう

その森で
ゆっくりと[わたし]の
やさしい空気をはく

  しばらくゆったり呼吸する


その森の
そよ風をきく

その森の
[わたし]の呼吸をきく


朝なら
その森で足を一歩ふみしめます

夜なら
その森の空にボールを投げます


   [   ] あなたに変えてください

 

 

 

   Composition


Breathe in the air quietly

in a forest

 you haven't seen before

 

In that forest,
breathe out
your kind air

  Breathe deeply

  for a while

 

Listen to the sound of
a wind
 in that forest

Listen to the sound of
your breathing
 in that forest


If it's in your morning,
 take one firm step
  in that forest


If it's in your night time,

 throw a ball in the sky

  in that forest
