English translation by Howard Fast of the poem by Nazim Hikmet Versione...

死んだ女の子 [1]

あけてちょうだい たたくのはあたし
あっちの戸 こっちの戸 あたしはたたくの
こわがらないで 見えないあたしを
だれにも見えない死んだ女の子を

あたしは死んだの あのヒロシマで
あのヒロシマで 夏の朝に
あのときも七つ いまでも七つ
死んだ子はけっして大きくならないの

炎がのんだの あたしの髪の毛を
あたしの両手を あたしのひとみを
あたしのからだはひとつかみの灰
冷たい風にさらわれていった灰

あなたにお願い だけどあたしは
パンもお米もなにもいらないの
あまいあめ玉もしゃぶれないの
紙きれみたいにもえたあたしは

戸をたたくのはあたしあたし
平和な世界に どうかしてちょうだい
炎が子どもを焼かないように
あまいあめ玉がしゃぶれるように

炎が子どもを焼かないように
あまいあめ玉がしゃぶれるように.
THE LITTLE DEAD GIRL

A little girl is at your door,
At every door, at every door,
A little girl you cannot see
Is at your door, is at your door

And for me, there will never be
The love and laughter you have known.
At Hiroshima, do you see,
My flesh was seared from every bone.

My hair was first to feel the flame,
Hot were my eyes and hot my hands,
Only a little ash remained,
Where I had played upon the sands.

Stranger, what can you do for me,
A little ash, a little girl?
A human child like paper burned,
An ash for the cooling wind to swirl.

A little dead child, burned by strife,
Oh, stranger please do this for me,
Your name on the scroll, peace and life,
And peace and life for all like me.

[1] Please, open the door; I’m the one who’s knocking,
あけてちょうだい たたくのはあたし
Knocking on this door, knocking on that door.
あっちの戸 こっちの戸 あたしはたたくの
Do not fear me, the girl you cannot see,
こわがらないで 見えないあたしを
The dead girl who nobody can see.
だれにも見えない死んだ女の子を
I died there, in Hiroshima,
あたしは死んだの あのヒロシマで
In Hiroshima on a summer morning;
あのヒロシマで 夏の朝に
I was seven then, and I am seven now;
あのときも七つ いまでも七つ
Dead children never grow up.
死んだ子はけっして大きくならないの
The flames swallowed it all up:
炎がのんだの あたしの髪の毛を
My hair, my arms, my eyes.
あたしの両手を あたしのひとみを
My body became a handful of ashes,
あたしのからだはひとつかみの灰
Ashes carried away on the cold wind.
冷たい風にさらわれていった灰
Please, I beg of you –
あなたにお願い だけどあたしは
Though I need no bread or rice,
パンもお米もなにもいらないの
And I cannot taste the sweetness of candy,
あまいあめ玉もしゃぶれないの
I have been burned up like scraps of paper.
紙きれみたいにもえたあたしは
It’s me who’s knocking on the door, it’s me;
戸をたたくのはあたしあたし
Please, somehow, bring peace to this world,
平和な世界に どうかしてちょうだい
So that no more children are burnt in the flames,
炎が子どもを焼かないように
So that they can still taste the sweetness of candy.
あまいあめ玉がしゃぶれるように
