ごんのワルツ


                                        by Maggie

I was bringing nuts and mushrooms

to my lonely friend Hyoju(Heiju)

when he found me and shot me just now

 

I was sorry for his mother

waiting for an eel he had caught

She missed it and left him so soon

 

I remember the day I did it just for fun

I released the eel out of his net

That was my fault  That was my sin

Now he knows how much I regret

and everything I’ve done for him
