Paper Balloon by Kuroda Saburo (紙風船/黒田三郎)

Next time
it comes down
I will launch it
higher
higher and higher
over and over again
Beautiful
like a wish

* * *

落ちてきたら
今度は
もっと高く
もっともっと高く
何度でも
打ち上げよう
美しい
願いごとのように

UPDATE: In the original post, I accidentally skipped over the line 何度でも (over and over again). Corrected.
