Kitanomaru Park

Kitanomaru Park

1/
Here’s a picture of us
Taking an impromptu walk
Side by side in the park
Our park, you dubbed
Underneath the darkened
Canopy of drizzle-wet foliage

Two-three Japanese frogs
Suspended their croaks
And returned the quiet
To the nearby loch

2/
This is the very photo
That framed your radiance
That warmed the shuddering
March of old Tokyo;
And this face used to be mine
Forlorn at the thoughts of two
Souls expecting me at home
