春霞たてるやいつこみよしののよしのの山に雪はふりつつ

Faru kasumi
tateru ya iduko
miyosino no
yosino no yama
yuki Fa Furitutu
The spring haze
Where does it rise?
Not in Yoshino,
On Yoshino mountain
The snow just keeps on falling.

KKS I: 1

Composed on a day when spring arrived in the old year.

年のうちに春は来にけりひととせをこぞとやいはむことしとやいはむ

tosi no uti
Faru Fa kinikeri
Fitotose wo
kozo to ya iFan
kotosi to ya iFan
Within the year
Spring has come again;
The one year:
What should I say: that it’s last year,
Or that it’s the year to come?
