Wind of Wales

This song was written by  Mr.Shohei Kono, the leader of Chikushino country herbs, a band which consisted of teachers and students of a school  for the blind in Fukuoka. The band  visited Wales in 2004 with members of Groundwork Fukuoka. Mr.Kono wrote this song with the impression of Wales.

 

Wind of Wales

 

When we reach the town of Cardiff

we can smell the fragrance of the dear summer

between the glittering street corners

The blue sea is shining

and wandering gulls are singing.

 

In front of the walls of Queens Street

we can smell the fragrance of the dear summer

The August is clear

and makes our hearts pure and clean

We remember the feeling we have forgotten a long time ago.

 

Everyone surely has

the key to the entrance of happiness

If we open this door

the wind of hope blows refreshingly into our hearts

Shall we meet in the town of Cardiff

where the wind of Wales blows

 

Everyone surely has

The ability to find the key for this door

If we can hear the emerald echo

the wind of hope blows

refreshingly into our hearts

 

If we open the doors to our hearts

We can even call our town a Cardiff

Shall we go to the town of Cardiff

Where the wind of Wales blows
