『キノの旅IV』 プロローグ 「紅い海の真ん中で・b」
Kino no Tabi IV
In the midst of a red sea・b
A voice was singing.
Over in a crimson world.
Red flowers in full bloom, growing tight and crowded in the earth.
With just the wide blue sky for company.
On the plains, not a soul in sight.
Still, the singing could be heard flowing over blue and red.
With the song's tempo increasing gradually.
Enjoyably, sadly, the song continues weaving.
The beautiful soprano rises, and the song ends.
A call of "Encore" rings out.
"I would like to hear 2 or 3 more tunes. If only..."
Another voice joined in, the singing voice. "If only...?"
"I could be upright," replied the first.
"Ah-haha. I understand. Just a little more then...."
Over the spread of red, a singing voice could be heard again.
Once again the song ended, and the first voice chirped in.
"What would we be doing next?"
The other voice replied nonchalantly'
"The same as always. We'll just travel to somewhere."
"Is that so. Guess that's what we'll do then," agreed the first voice, "I would really like to get up now, Kino."
