I was in love with a girl, because
Her hair is curly and black.
She, who lives near the bank of the river,
Everyone watched her and whispered.
She walks alone on sunny days,
enjoying the breeze though
Everyone watches her.
She, who learned to be a girl of the village
has a perfectly gifted figure.
I didn’t find any weakness in her.
I used to wait a while for her but my
thought vanished when she moved
towards the river for boating.
I used to go to a place where the river
and sea collide to watch and enjoy
the flying birds in the sky.
