Anthology "Other Side River 1: Stone Bridge Press, Berkeley in 1995. Review 2,

My poem "Lead Me to Henrinji Temple" was put into an opera by Mr, Burton V. Foreman. http://www.bvforeman.com/
This music was reportedly to be used for a new movie by Tokuma-shobo but it did not happen. This song was one of the
three songs performed and recorded by the Radio and Symphony Orchestra of Krakow, Poland in mid 1990's.

"Lead Me to Heirinji Temple"
poem by Fumiko Tachibana/
music by Burton V. Foreman

Lead me to Heirinji Temple

I walked alone
through rice fields
and far-reaching sky

a crow perched
on top of a leafless tree
tilting its head

forlorn (ah)
forlorn (ah)
the crow cried

forlorn (ah)
forlorn (ah)
the crow watched
a distorted face

I wish the wind would
carry away my tears
but it's too late

coming this far
to be near to you

but it's too late

何時に弾いたのか覚えていませんがずいぶん鳥の声が聞こえますね。何十年ぶりで弾いています。

from my blog:

For my family and friends:
I participated in the orchestra, North Coast Strings which is presented to public as part of educational program for adults (of all ages) sponsored by Museum of Making Music. This spring session was conducted by Alyze Dreiling, a guest conductor, on June 16, 2018.  This is the record for myself to review and improve and enjoy the performance on the big screen and for my friends and family to enjoy too.
