A Moonlit Night by Oguma Hideo (月夜 / 小熊秀雄)

Moonless, bright moonlit night
Pale white moonlight
A woman hides somewhere in the dark waiting for her lover
Pale white moonlight
Whistling
Whistling
The masseur’s whistling
Suddenly stops in the moonlit night
From the illuminated pine trees
A hanging neck
Stretches and contracts in the night
This melancholy moonlit night

月のない、あかるい月夜
あをじろい月夜
あひびきの女がどこかのくらやみにひそむ
あをじろい月夜
笛が鳴つて
笛が鳴つて
按摩の笛が鳴つて
きえてしまつた月夜
いるみねーしよんの松の樹に
首くゝりの首が
のびたり、ちぢんだりしてゐる夜である
なやましい月夜である
