Composed on the spirit of Spring Rain, when hundred-poem sequences were presented during the reign of Retired Emperor Horikawa (1079-1107; r. 1086-1107).

春雨のふりそめしより片岡の裾野の原ぞあさみどりなる

Since a spring shower
Started falling,
In Kataoka,
The field of Susono
Has turned the palest green.

春のくるあしたの原を見渡せば霞も今日ぞ立ち始めける

Spring has come
This morning to the fields of Ashita;
Gazing across,
The haze, today,
Has begun to rise.
