Spring 12

Left (Tie).

名取河春の日數は顯て花にぞしづむせゞの埋木

natorigawa
haru no hi kazu wa
arawarete
hana ni zo shizumu
seze no mumoregi
The river Natori:
The days of spring have reached
Their span, and
Blossom swamps
The drowned tree upon the shoals.

Right

名もしるし峰のあらしも雪とふる山櫻戸のあけぼのゝ空

na mo shirushi
mine no arashi mo
yuki to furu
yamasakurado no
akebono no sora
It’s all in the name:
Storm winds from the peak
Scatter a snowstorm of blossom;
My mountain cherry door
Open upon a dawning sky.
