The lyrics to the song “Akatombo” are in fact a poem, written by Rofū Miki in 1921: they depict a nostalgic remembrance of a Japanese red dragonfly seen by a child at sunset.
Yûyake-koyake no akatombo.
Owarete mitano wa itsu no hi ka.
Yama no hatake no kuwa no mi o
Kokago ni tsunda wa maboroshi ka.
Jûgo de nêya wa yome ni yuki,
Osato no tayori mo taehateta.
Yûyake koyake no akatombo –
Tomatte iru yo, sao no saki.
