POEM :Black Pipe Organ

Won't you play the organ, mistress?
Dressed in black,
You sit at an organ,
Let your fingers crawl across the keyboard,
Lithely, gently, coyly. Like the sound of snowfall.
Won't you play the organ, mistress?

Who's that singing over there?
Who's there listening, enthralled?
O, in this pitch-black, anxious dark,
Who could it be, playing the fearsome unwieldly organ
That's stuck on the wall?
And shaking in religious, fanatic fury;
Spasmic pipe-organ. Requiem!
Pray now, sickly one.
Nothing to fear. No time to fear.
Play that organ.
Gently, hold that note, be coy.
Like pine needles in the blizzard that
Scatter bright glitters this way.
O play on, play that organ.
Play that organ, mistress.

O wearing the long black robe
Until feelings are stilledd,
Play the great black organ.
Walled in by the fearsome dark,
You will commit yourself to firey passion.
Mistress,
What violent, melancholic tremors, these.

HAGIWARA GROUP 1981 - 1991
POET Sakutaro Hagiwara (1886-1942 / Japan)
SAKUTARO HAGIWARA was a japaneese poet who liked to recite his poems in beer pubs in Japan.
From the beginning he did not adapt to the traditional verse idiom but in the end he returned to traditional poem writing.

He was a bohemian who went his own way and inspired us to form the band HAGIWARA.

POEM : Hirose River

The Hirose River runs all white,
As time wiles away, so too disappear all fanciful thoughts.
Hoping to bait life on hook and line,
I dangled my fishing rod in the river yesterday.
O such merriment has long receded,
Now minnowy fish scarce catch the eye.
