Te lucis ante (Romanized Japanese)

In Text on February 1, 2009 at 4:48 pm
Toki wa kita.
    Funade no kioku yomigaeri
    yugure o itamu kane no ne.
 
Seilei o mita.
    Ryote o age, te o awase, toho o mita.
    “Hoka wa issai nento ni nashi” Kami ni tsugeru yo ni.
 
“Te lucis ante”
    Sono kuchi kara hasse rareru kiyorakana shirabe ni
    omowazu ware o wasureta.
 
Mawari no seilei tachi subete mo
    konjiki no hibiki de showa shi
    shinko no manazashi wa tenkyu ni mukatta.
 
Kedakaki seilei no mure
    tachisukumi, aozame, tsutsumashiku
    nanika o matsu yo ni ten o aoida.
 
Futari no tenshi tachi
    hono no tsurugi o mochi
    ten no takami kara araware, orite kita.
 
Wakaba no yona midori no koromo wa hirogari
    midori no tsubasa ni utare, fukare, nabiki,
    hatameki, uzumaki.
 
Hitori wa watashi no ue ni fuyu shi
    hitori wa taigan ni nagare
    seilei tachi wa kono futari ni tsutsumareta.
 
Sono ogon no kami wa mirukotoga dekitaga
    kao no amari no kagayaki ni uchinomesare
    mega kuranda.
 
« Maria no futokoro kara kitaru tenshi tachi yo »
