sanae ni mo

On planting the rice fields: thinking deeply upon the various famous places in Michinoku, and feeling especially fond of the remains of the barrier house, we set out upon the old roads and came to the place now called Shirakawa.


sanae ni mo
wa ga iro kuroki
hi kazu kana
The rice-seedlings are out,
And I am tanned black–
All these days in the sun, no doubt!
