水牛の歩み/ Steps of Water Buffalo : 高村光太郎 / Mistutaro Takamura

水牛は重荷追うても
Even Water Buffalo bears burden
そのことは言わぬ
Does not say anything about it
ただ黙々と歩む
Just walks in silent

その蹄は大地に食い入り
The hoof plows cutting into earth,
一歩一歩歩む
And water buffalo walks, step by step,
暑い日ざしの中を
Under the hot sunshine
白砂の眩しい珊瑚の石垣の道
The road of Ishigaki with white sand of dazzling coral
沖縄の屋根低い家
Okinawa low ceiling house
水牛はただ黙々と歩む
Water buffalo just walk in silent
そのずっしりとした体に
In his large-heavy body
重荷を受けとめ黙々と歩む
Carries burden, and walks silently .

人は騒ぎすぎる
Human are too noisy…
人は解決を急ぎすぎる
Human too hurry to get solution & answer..
人は不満が多すぎる
Human feel too much dissatisfaction
人はすぐに争いすぎる
Human fight & conflict easily.
人は性急に判断しすぎる
Human judge or assess impetuously
人は待つことを好まぬ
Human dislike patience
人は早い成功を求めすぎる
Human will to succeed as soon as possible
人は結果を求めすぎる
Human too much call for the result
人は小さいことにこだわる
Human are too particular about trifles
人は・・・・・・・・
Human Being……
人は・・・・・・・・
Human Being…

水牛の重い体躯は無言の内にたしなめる
Large-heavy bodied water buffalo beware implicitly
一歩一歩水牛は己の道を歩む
Step by step, water buffalo steps forward on his way of life
そこに惑いはない
There are no doubt….
地球という悠久の時のなかに
At eternal time of the earth
水牛はあせることなく一歩一歩歩む
Water Buffalo walks step by step modestly
その力はその角にみなぎり
The horns vibrant with energy..
その瞳は優しく童がその背にのる
The eyes are too gentle & child rides in his back
水牛は悠々たる大いなるガンジスの流れに
Great leisurely Ganges flow,
その重い体躯を洗い川にとけこむ
Water Buffalo cleanse his large heavy body blend with surrounding the river
水牛は地球の歳月の長きがごとく
As well as long history & long time at Earth
ただ黙々と一歩一歩歩みつづける
Water buffalo just keeps walking step by step silently.
