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
