In the distance sea birds fly toward the far shore,
Above the bay and beach through the mist majestic Fuji-san,
As numerous ships and fishing boats ply Tokyo Wan
From above hidden nests Cherry Blossoms drop quietly
On those that rest on limbs outstretched above the stream
This scene is real, a paradise, not a wild dream.
Go with me there, to the land of home-again,
Where we will quietly and slowly regain
Perspective for the years that yet remain
