The writing on this hand-painted etegami is a quote from an old, but well-loved Japanese children’s song: “[It’s eyes are blue] because it flew in the blue sky”

“his eyes are blue,because it flew in blue sky.”,wonderful .I like the dragonfly.
The song goes on to ask why the red dragonfly’s eyes are red, and it answers: “because it looked at the sunset.”
