AROUND THE TIME WHEN THE DILUVIAL EPOCH ENDED

Around the time when the diluvial epoch ended
And the Kitakami River settled on its present place
This area was awash with white cedars
Black alders and walnut trees
Till was carried from the mountains
During those everlasting centuries pressed with events
Deposited in places
Jumbled, scattered...
Now, following the course of 80,000 years
With the names of the celebrated peaks
And the ancient spirits duly recorded
It disperses into the contemporary order
