足跡
ずっと昔のこと
一匹の狐が河岸の粘土層を走っていった
それから
何万年かたったあとに
その粘土層が化石となって足跡が残った
その足跡を見ると むかし狐が何を考えて走っていったのかがわかる
A Footprint
Long ago
a fox ran along a clay river bank.
After an interim
of tens of thousands of years
a footprint turned fossil remains.
Looking at it, you'll see
what the fox was thinking while running.
