Shimenawa
Meoto-Iwa, Futami, Mie Prefecture

In the shadow of a setting sun
Trails light across a rippling sea
A cord that weds still rock to rock

A cord that weds still rock to rock
Is shadowed in the setting sun
Above a quietly rippling sea

Above a quietly rippling sea
Stands two wed lovers, rock and rock
In the shadow of a setting sun
