Lesson Transcript

ほたるの ひかり まどのゆき
ふみよむ つきひ かさねつつ
いつしか かしも すぎのとを
あけてぞ けさは わかれゆく
とまるも ゆくも かぎりとても
かたみに おもう ちよろずの
こころの はしを ひとことに
さきくと ばかり うとうなり

Hi Ilikefrogs,


Thank you for your comment!

These lyrics of this song are very old and difficult.

It's so great you tried to read and understand them.

The song is about memories of the days learning at school with friends and having a departure to a new world.

And wishing their happy and peaceful futures each other.

So this song is sung at graduation ceremonies in Japan.


Please let us know if you have any question:)


Sincerely,

Miho

This is what it says. (I think)

The light of the firefly, the snow in the sky

As I read, I wonder if I'll ever know.

When will the light be gone?

The morning dawns, and the day fades away

The sky is full of light

I think of you, my dear ones

In a word, the edge of my heart

I can't stop thinking about it

Thank you so much for your comment😄

We're sorry, but this one is for students to learn the song😅

If you're learning hiragana now, you can use it to practice hiragana also by listening to the song and reading the lyrics.

Please let us know if you have any questions :)
