A Ballad Of The Mulberry Road

 The sun rises in south east corner of things

To look on the tall house of the Shin

For they have a daughter named Rafu,

(pretty girl)

She made the name for herself: ‘Gauze Veil,’

For she feeds mulberries to silkworms.

She gets them by the south wall of the town.

With green strings she makes the warp of her basket,

She makes the shoulder-straps of her basket

from the boughs of Katsura,

And she piles her hair up on the left side of her headpiece.

Her earrings are made of pearl,

Her underskirt is of green pattern-silk,

Her overskirt is the same silk dyed in purple,

And when men going by look on Rafu

They set down their burdens,

They stand and twirl their moustaches

    It is very interesting for me to read the article. Thanks for it. I like such topics and everything connected to this matter. I would like to read a bit more on that blog soon. By the way, rather nice design you have here, but don’t you think design should be changed once in a few months?
