春されば 野邊にまづ咲く 見れどあかぬ 花まひなしに たゞ名のるべき 花の名なれや

Faru sareba
nobe ni madu saku
miredo akanu
Fana maFinasi ni
tada nanorubeki
Fana no na nare ya
Spring is come, and
The plain before me blooms, and
Of the sight never will I have my fill;
Such flowers, for no recompense,
Should they be styled,
Their name given?
