A Foxes’ Wedding

In Japan, rain falling from a clear sky is called a “Foxes’ Wedding”

To Inari-Sama

She leaves whispers in the greenwood
Sylvan shadows, silver light
Raindrops falling one by one
It’s a foxes’ wedding today

Twilight trails behind her
Sylvan shadows one by one
She leaves raindrops in the forest
It’s a foxes’ wedding today

Silver light is fading
Trailing rainclouds one by one
She leaves twilight in the mountains
It’s a foxes’ wedding today

Raindrops falling in the greenwood
Silver light in sylvan green
She leaves sorrow in the twilight
It’s a foxes’ wedding tonight
