般若の面 -Mask of hannya-

面を掛けて朧に舞
五月雨と現に消える
八千代に織り成す交わりは
鬼を呼び蛙を増やす

艶やかに
狂おしく
身を散らせ(身を散らせ)

般若の面に
映る黄昏
さあ踊りゃんせ
宵になりゃ
物の怪も傍らに
般若の面に
映る明星
そら見やしゃんせ
一つ光るは夢の跡

面を掛けて朧に舞(朧に舞)
五月雨(五月雨)と現に消える(消える)
般若の面に
映るは昔

般若の面に
宿るは化生
ほれ帰りゃんせ
居なくなりゃ
静けさも一年に
般若の面に
宿る繊月
そら見やしゃんせ
一つ刺さるは美し

般若の面に
映る黄昏
さあ踊りゃんせ
宵になりゃ
物の怪も傍らに
般若の面に
映る明星
そら見やしゃんせ
一つ光るは夢の跡

Omote wo kakete oboro ni mai (oboro ni mai)
Samidare (Samidare) to utsutsu ni kieru (kieru)
Hannya no men ni

Hannya no men ni
Utsuru tasogare
Saa odoryanse
Yoi ni narya
Mononoke mo katawara ni
Hannya no men ni
Utsuru myoujou
Sora miyashanse
Hitotsu hikaru wa yume no ato



Mask of Hannya

Donning their masks, they dance in the shadows.
Disappear into the summer rain and reality.
This interwoven mingling continuing on for an eternity
Calls forth even more Oni-summoning Kawazu.

Bewitching,
Frenzied,
Let your bodies free (Let your bodies free).

In the masks of Hannya,
Reflected is the dusk.
Now, dance with us.
Once evening falls
The mononoke will be present by the sides, too.
In the masks of Hannya,
Reflected is the morning star.
Now, gaze at it.
The single point of light is the traces of a dream.

Donning their masks, they dance in the shadows. (Dancing in the shadows.)
Disappear (Disappear) into the summer rain (summer rain) and reality.
In the masks of Hannya,
Reflected is the dusk.

In the masks of Hannya,
Hidden is the goblin.
Now, return home.
Without your presence,
Silence returns for another year.
In the masks of Hannya,
Hidden is the crescent moon.
Now, gaze at it.
The single honed point is piercing beauty.

In the masks of Hannya,
Reflected is the dusk.
Now, dance with us.
Once evening falls
The mononoke will be present by the sides, too.
In the masks of Hannya,
Reflected is the morning star.
Now, gaze at it.
The single point of light is the traces of a dream.




Notes:

  • Hannya and Kawazu (the Frog) are masks in Noh theater.  The Hannya mask is meant to represent a jealous female demon, although in this case it’s probably used just as a really creepy leering mask.
