Tanka...to Rogetsu's house 短歌 露月の家


露先生かげる玄関の大きなる電球玉の医の佇まひ

the shadow of
Dr. Rogetsu remains --
a large light bulb
at the entrance gives
the air of a medical house

青々と苔むす台の石碑なり露月したふる地の人おもふ

lush moss
on Rogetsu's stone monument
reminds me 
how his neighbors
...have loved him


※石井露月の職業は開業医でした。地域医療に尽くし、
腕が良かったので、村民によく慕われたということです。

Rogetsu was a skilled and local doctor, so he was loved by villagers.

'large light bulb'
shinin' bright through the night
a silent leader ...
