A View of Spring — Three People Gathered by Oguma Hideo (春情――三人集―― / 小熊秀雄)

Spring, April . . .
Blowing rings of smoke from a cigarette
At the foot of a bridge, looking up at the sky
   ×
Giggling, dressed all in white
A woman passing through
fog-covered streets . . . Spring, April

春だ四月だ……
煙草のけむり輪にふいて
橋のたもとで空をながめた
   ×
濃霧(がす)の街を
げらげら笑つて直白な
女が通つた……春だ四月だ

NOTES:

Oguma Hideo (1901-1940) was a Japanese poet, critic, children’s writer and manga author.
