Arise O Sons Of The Shining Stars

Arise O sons of the Shining stars! Arise and speed like your fish-like cars. Tan your sorrows and pains with ease And sway in delight like your Sakura trees. Arise O sons of the shining stars! Thorns' scratches on elephant are but minor scars Send your technology-eyed-gods to work Let them unfold their talents to move the technological clock Arise O land of the shining stars! You are the prime existence of worthy technology dreamers Your scions stun the world with series of technological perfections Toyota, Yamaha and Honda are just lovely kids in actions Arise O land of the shining stars! Tourists' eyes lost in gourmand stares Of your ancient beauties lurked in Matsushuma bay Where blue water, craggy rocks and twisted Pine trees drip ancient wisdom to people of today For Debbie Guzzi's contest:"Tribute to Japan"
