KYS I: 53

Composed when a large number of the Junior Consort’s ladies conducted blossom-viewing during the reign of former Emperor Horikawa.

春毎にあかぬ匂をさくら花いかなる風のをしまざるらむ

Faru goto ni
akanu nioFi wo
sakurabana
ikanaru kaze no
woshimazaruramu
Every single spring
Never am I sated by
The cherry blossom;
What breeze is it that
Is not a cause of regret?
