Land of rising sun
Unsettled courage fell
Black walls of night seas swelled
Icy obliteration of Spring’s green
Gentle silkworms, apple blossoms shaken
Sweeping darkness, children weeping, a father
Stared down destruction’s hell, his sons held close
Debris, death falling, silent as snow
Scattered prayers like falling stars
Waiting whispered echoes
Shine…shine again…
Land of rising sun
