 森の侵入者(原題:The Invaders)

詩:A.A. Milne

曲:Tsutomu Yonejima

 

In careless patches through the wood

The clumps of yellow primrose stood

And sheets of white anemones

Like driven snow against the trees

Had covered up the violet

But left the blue-bell bluer yet

 

Along the narrow carpet ride

With primroses on either side

Between their shadows and the sun

The cows came slowly, one by one

Breathing the early morning air

And leaving it still sweeter there

 

And, one by one, intent upon

Their purposes, they followed on

In ordered silence. . . and were gone

But all the little wood was still

And if it waited so, until

 

Some blackbird on an outpost yew

Watching the slow procession through

Lifted his yellow beak at last

To whistle that the line had passed

Then all the wood began to sing

Its morning anthem to the spring
