In Praise of the Squire

Come see this squire’s life.
He flies his flag in the town.
His house is in Tachi-machi, Abura-machi,
The squire rests in the afternoon on the second floor,
With coins in his pillow and money in his hands.
Come see this talisman,
Which we can’t obtain or even touch.
A high place is called “a castle”,
A low place is called “beneath the castle.”
