The surf pounds against cliff
I beat my pillow moaning
you are gone, your heart of stone
not swayed by my tears
onoko*-san the bringer
who has seeded my garden
return like the sea otter
through the waves to me
The conch shell echoes your name
you are spirit born, deck lifted
I have burnt incense for you
do not haunt my shoals
* Three Dodoitsu's which tell the tale of LOVE meant to be sung.
onoko is the Ainu word for man comprised of 3 syllables
“o”, “no” and “ko” which refer to male and female sexual organs.
