Cherry blossom viewing

I

Highkicking can-can dancers
reveal their blossom's lace.

My feet plod the pathway
but I don't feel their steps.

II

Cherry blossom drifts down
on the young girls drifts down

Their skin is as white as petals
cherry blossom drifts down

III

Under the cherry trees
drinking saké.

White petals,
red faces.
