Noh chant

寺は桂の橋柱
立ち出でて峯の雲花やあらぬ初櫻の
祇園林下河原
南を遥かに眺むれば大悲擁護の薄霞
熊野権現の移ります
御名も同じの今熊野稲荷の山の薄紅葉の青かりし葉の秋
また花の春は清水の唯頼め頼もしき春も千々の花盛り 


This is the chant we are learning for class. I must practice...but after class (恥ずかしい思いをした) I am a bit - make that very - reluctant to do that. Hey, it wouldn't have been bad if I only had to do that first line! If anything, though, I served to make my classmates feel better about their performances^^
Still, the entire experience (as well as the latest lit book) got me thinking about a lot in the way I relate to people and the values I have set. All this somber work recently has my mind tied in knots.
