Today, crooked branch grows falling cherry blossoms

Looking for images from the new Miyazaki movie opening this weekend, I was directed to many interesting Japanese web sites by Google's image-collecting tool; there I found this really fun story-telling site that has done a nice job of recreating classic tales for kids (& adults I believe!) in a simply animated but fun & functional format:



And reading these stories, in turn, lead me to investigate the parent URL; which is also a wonderful web site full of interesting information about Japan & gorgeous photographs: http://web-japan.org/



Washu's Lullaby
(from the Tenchi Animated Series)
Vocals: Scottie Haskell


April roses, tiny sparrows
Comets bright and new
All belong together
With the mystery that is you
When I see your little face
I hear a song from long ago
I think you know
The many secrets I've forgotten

Generations through the ages
Joined as one somehow
Leading to the miracle
That I am holding now
From the sky and from the sea
Upon a breeze you came to me
You seem to see
A greater universe than I do

Sleep my baby, sleep my baby
Dream of somewhere far away
Do you remember still
How I hope you always will
Keep the memory of the day
The world was born

When you wake up I'll be waiting
Eager for your smile
You've had quite a journey darling
You should rest a while
When you cry we still rejoice
To hear your voice - oh yes, it's true
My sweet Washu
Please understand how much we love you

Sleep my baby, sleep my baby
Later on perhaps you'll tell
The wonderous things you've seen
More miraculous than dreams
Tell me all about the day
The world was born

[ Instrumental ]

Sleep my baby, sleep my baby
Dream of somewhere far away
Do you remember still
How I hope you always will
Keep the memory of the day
The world was born
