Love 52

Left (Win).

松が根をいそべの浪のうつたえにあらはれぬべき袖の上かな

matsu ga ne o
isobe no nami no
utsutae ni
arawarenubeki
sode no ue kana
The pine trees’ roots
By stony shore bound waves
Are struck, and
Must stand revealed
Upon my sleeves.

Right

初雁のとわたる風のたよりにもあらぬ思ひを誰につたへん

hatsukari no
towataru kaze no
tayori ni mo
aranu omoi o
tare ni tsutaen
The first, returning goose,
Borne before the gate of heaven, of the unseen wind
Is no harbinger;
Just so the fires of my love:
To whom should I reveal them?
