MYS XIX: 4139

2nd Year of Tempyô-Shôhô [750], Third Month First Day, an evening in springtime: Two poems composed while gazing at the blossoms of the peach and damson trees in my garden.


paru nö sönö
kurenawi nipopu
momo nö pana
sita teru miti ni
idetatu wotöme
A springtime garden
Glows scarlet
With peach blossom
And on the path, lit with colour
Appears a maiden.
