Let us open our leaves like a flower, and be passive and receptive.
花のように葉を広げ、受容性と感受性を持とう。
– John Keats  キーツ

The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him.
芸術家は自然の友であり、花はその茎の優美な曲線と調和のとれた絶妙な色合いで会話する。どんな花も直接心から語りかける言葉を持っているのだ。

It must be the right time to post another l.t.f. This is my second contribution to WPC:Tiny.

Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the flowers gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the flowers gone?
Young girls have picked them everyone
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Pete Seeger

Just like other people, I believed the song had been written by Peter Paul and Mary for a long time. It is known as an anti-war song but also could be a song for looking back on our history of civilization.

野に咲く花はいまいづこ
はるか流れる時の向こう
野に咲く花はいまいづこ
遠い昔のことのよに
野に咲く花はいまいづこ
少女達が摘んでいった
おぉ、いつになったら分かるのか
おぉ、学ぶ時はいつの日か

ピートシーガー

御多分に洩れず、この歌はピーター・ポール&マリーのものだとずっと誤解していた。反戦歌として知られているが、文明化を振り返る歌でもあるだろう。
日本語でも多数カバーされているからメロディーに乗った美しい訳はカバー曲に任せたい。小訳は少しだけクラシカルな詩として試してみた。

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.
The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.
The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.

出来ないことをやってのけるというのは、ある意味楽しみみたいなものだ。
逆境に咲く花は何よりも貴重で美しい。
その過去に傷つくこともあるかもしれない。だが、私に言わせるなら、そこから逃げ出すことも学ぶことも出来るというものだ。

The Bluebell is the sweetest flower
That waves in summer air:
Its blossoms have the mightiest power
To soothe my spirit’s care.
ブルーベルはこの世で一番かぐわしく
夏の風に揺らめいて、
花は偉大な力で
私の魂の痛みを和らげる。

Emily Bronte

note: flowers in the picture are not bluebells. I chose similar one in my stocks.
