Ten Nights of Dreams(夢十夜:ゆめじゅうや)

The First Night(第一夜:だいいちや)

Soseki Natsume(夏目 漱石:なつめ そうせき)


女 が、

静かな 声 で

もう 死にます


(もう:now)

(死ぬ:しぬ:to die)

(言う:いう:to say)


The dreamer sits at the bedside of a woman who says she is dying. Because of the warm color in her lips and cheeks, he questions, several times, if she truly is dying. After confirming that she must indeed die, the woman asks a favor. After she dies, he should dig her grave with a large shell, mark it with a fragment of fallen star, and wait at its side a hundred years for her return. The dreamer prepares her grave and buries her as requested. Then he begins his vigil, losing count of the days as years go by. As he begins to wonder if she didn’t deceive him, a slender stem emerges and a white lily blossoms before him. He touches his lips to a dewdrop on the lily and knows in that moment that a hundred years have passed.
