雪月花 Setsugetsuka

松任谷 由実 Yumi Matsutoya

Released in February 2003, this song is her 36th single.  This is not “the most” popular songs among Yuming’s many hit songs, but this is definitely popular song among her fans and she often performs on stage during her concert tour by the request from her fans.

This is a beautiful ballad and the lyrics can be interpreted to different stories according to listeners.  “雪月花 Setsugetsuka” means natural beauty in four seasons like, “雪 Snow in winter”、”月 Moon in autumn”, and “花 Flower in spring”.  As the season changes, you can always find beauty in the nature.
