The Denizens of the Land of Rising Sun

Their spirits never founder
in any disaster.
Even in the worst melancholy
their hopes aren’t shattered so easily.
Before their courage, that’s boundless
fiascos have to be faced by menace.
They do bend with gratitude
but nothing can break their fortitude.
Bravely they face each  twist and turn.
They are the people of
The Land of Rising Sun.
