(1)

I_wata is a  hillsi_de town  /  we all fee_l  so_ prou_d  o_f.

The  ecological  resources are_  /  No. 1 (Num_ber  one_ )  in Japan

A_ll so_rts o_f  dragon flies inhabi_t  /  Okegaya  Ma__rsh.

Ya_m_ma__,  Be__kkou,  /  their la_rvae  emer_ge here.

We  hope they  enjoy   themselves  /  un_der  our blue skies.

 

(2)

The_  boardwa_lk  ta_kes you  /  around the marsh  ha_lfwa__y.

You’_ll encounter  so many bir_ds   /  chir_ping  me_rrily.

A_ll so_rts o_f  dragon flies inhabit  /  Okegaya  Ma__rsh.

A_ka_ne__,  Beni__-Ito  /  wi_th their color_fu_l  bo__die_s,

Si_lently  sit on_  the fences.  /  Who  are the_y  waiting for?

 

(3)

Hear_ing the  cro_ws  crying  /  on the way back to_  their roo_sts,

Chil_dren feel li_ke  seeing their moms  /  in__  the_  evening.

A_ll so_rts o_f  dragon flies inhabit  /  Okegaya  Ma__rsh.

Sa_na_e__,  Yotsu_boshi,   /  we’_ll whisper “Good Ni_ght  to them

The  skies are  really  dark red.  /  Ho_w beauti_ful the clouds are!

磐田の丘に

故郷(ふるさと)自慢         

自然の宝庫(ほうこ)日本一            

とんぼの里の 桶ヶ谷沼は
ヤンマ。べッコウ

ヤゴが羽化(うか)して

嬉(うれ)し旅立ち 青い空

池沼(いけぬま)めぐり

歩道にあそぶ            

名前も知らぬ 鳥が鳴く             

とんぼの里の 桶ヶ谷沼は            

アカネ。べニイト

色あざやかに            

柵(さく)にとまって

誰を待つ

ねぐらに帰る からすの声に
母さん恋し 日暮れどき

とんぼの里の 桶ヶ谷沼は
サナエ。ヨツボシ

そっとさようなら
空は夕焼け あかね雲
