SKS I: 49

Composed on an old man regretting the passing of Spring.

老いてこそ春のおしさはまさりけれいまいくたびも逢はじと思へば

oite koso
Faru no osisa Fa
masarikere
ima iku tabi mo
aFazi to omoFeba
For the aged
Regrets in springtime are
Extreme, indeed:
For now, not another time
Will I encounter it, I feel.

Tachibana no Toshinari
