For Takahata-san!

But what is that sound?
Rush! Growls of mortal peril!
Fire from the skies.

For honour and love
Veterans at tug-of-war
Banter as he cries.

Amongst shattered dreams
From the fire, innocence
Sheltered in the caves.

See those fireflies?
Try to keep them, and you will
Lead them to their graves.
