Haiku Poem – 雪解け

now melts
water rushes away
river floods

(Ben version)
雪解けや川が溢れた四面楚歌
ゆきどけ や かわ が あふれた しめんそか

(Michiko version)
水温む一気に溶けて川の道
みず ぬるむ いっき に とけて かわ の みち

In Iowa, there was a new record for the amount of snow in the month of February. As a result, when the weather suddenly got warmer in March, as the snow melted quickly, the rivers were filled with water. Unfortunately, this meant that there was a lot of flooding. The flooding was worst in western Iowa near Nebraska. It is sad that some towns were covered with water. Even near my home, there were some signs of flooding. I hope the worst part is now over.

 今年、アイオワ州では、二月の積雪量の記録を更新しました。その結果、三月になって急に天気が暖かくなり、雪が急速に溶けたので、川の水が増水しました。そして、残念ながら、たくさんの洪水が発生しました。アイオワ州西部やネブラスカ州の近くが最悪でした。いくつかの町が洪水で水浸しになったのは悲しいことです。私の家の近くでさえ、洪水の兆候がいくつかありました。最悪の事態は終わったことを願っています。
