This goes to a Japanese song. I guess it is quite famous. Its short .

はるをあいする人は

こころきようきひと

すみれのはなのような

ぼくのともだち


I think some of the words are "spring, love, person, heart, flower, I, friend", but that's about all I know

Thanks

The second line should be こころきよきひと (う is unnecessary).

What you are doing is just picking up fragments. You need to parse the sentence, first of all.

Does it help if I write for you,
はる を あいする ひと は
こころきよき ひと
すみれ の はな の よう な
ぼく の ともだち

Also, I believe this is only 1/4 of the entire song, or less. There's at least a similar verse for each season,
and maybe an opening and/or concluding verse as well. I'm not really sure, but I have heard it in
at least one anime and more than one nhk drama.

(Hmm. Probably. There may actually be more than one song along the same lines and I've never
compared or memorized any of them.)
