snow on snow

Masajo 真砂女 1961年 55


onaji sora no sitani sumu yuki tsumoru kana

Lee & Emiko’s English

under the same sky

your life and my life…

snow piles on snow

Seasonal word; snow ( winter )

Note: Masajo moved to live in Tokyo, and her lover was in a

sanatorium in suburb of Tokyo. Masajo looked up in the sky and

thought they were living under the same sky now. Snow was falling

and was covering the ground. She wondered if his place also

covered with snow.
