KumaZenko-YAMA
(BearFox Mountain)

 

Rising high above sea and foam
set about in vastness, blackness

In silence, the moon-bears witness
four slashes across the stone

At nine times freezing midnight
nine oceans falling down

While round a certain nettle tree...

Starlight dances softly
all secret and unknown

Lights, in circles with their playing
set nine fires within the bones

Nine flames now and always warming
a fox's golden home.
