なくなった被爆青桐二世 Hibaku 2nd Generation Gone!!

「砂入さん、今月初めには、公園に居たのですが、14日訪ねたらいない!この間、この公園は、花見でにぎやかでした。誠に残念です。公園で小さくなって、存在していたので、誰かが踏むのではないか、折ってしまうのではないか、ボールあそびのボールがあたるのではないかと気にはなっていたのですが・・・。周辺をさがしましたが見当たりません。小さな幹に大きな葉をつけてくれるのを夢みていたのですが・・・。再挑戦はできますでしょうか。こちらでの関係者、みんな残念がっています。今年の夏はけ帰省されますか。申し訳ない報告です。」竹澤

"Mr. Sunairi, Early this month of April 14th, I went to the park to see how our Hibaku Parasol Tree was doing, then I couldn't find it, I thought I saw it a while ago. This park had many people gathering for Hanami (in Japanese tradition in the spring time, they do picnick on the ground by blossomed trees). I feel terrible. It has gotten smaller without leaves, so I was afraid someone would step on it or kids playing succor would break the seedling...I looked for it around there for a while... I was dreaming of it growing large leaves....can I try again? Many of my friends are very sad about it. Are you coming back to Hiroshima? This is an unfortunate news....."

「 何か起ったのでしょうね!残念ですが仕方ないですね!是非また新たに挑戦しましょう!」砂入

"Something may have happened, it is unfortunate, but nothing we can do with it! So let's try a new seed!!"
