LYRICS

Yuuyake koyake no aka-tonbo,
Owarete mitano wa itsu no hi ka?
Yama no hatake no kuwa no mi o
Kokago ni tsunda wa maboroshi ka?

Juugo de neeya wa yome ni yuki
Osato no tayori mo taehateta.

Yuuyake koyake no aka-tonbo,
Tomatte iruyo, sao no saki.

 

translation

Red dragonfly in the fading sunset,
long ago my sister would carry me on her back.
Picking mulberries from the mountain field
 into little baskets… was that all a dream?
 
My sister married at fifteen and moved far away.
She no longer sends news to our village.
 
Red dragonfly in the fading sunset,
I see you resting on the tip of the bamboo reed.
