鳥の乙女/Bird Maiden

"Four things that never meet do here unite To shed my blood and to ravage my heart, A radiant brow and tresses that beguile And rosy cheeks and a glittering smile."
――The Arabian Nights, trans. Haddawy


今まで出会ったこともない
四つのものがここに集い、
我が血をこぼし、我が心を騒がせる。
輝くばかりの眉に、心を惑わす長い髪
薔薇の頬に、きらめく微笑み。
――アラビアン・ナイト

Four things that never meet do here unite
To shed my blood and to ravage my heart,
A radiant brow and tresses that beguile
And rosy cheeks and a glittering smile."
