Spring 7

Left (Tie)

櫻花咲にし日よりよしの山空もひとつにかほる白雲

sakurabana
sakinishi hi yori
yoshino yama
sora mo hitotsu ni
kaoru shirakumo
The cherry blossom
Bloomed, and from that day
The mount of Yoshino and
The sky above were as one:
Fragrant clouds of white.

霞立峰の櫻のあさぼらけくれなゐくゝる天の河浪

kasumitachi
mine no sakura no
asaborake
kurenai kukuru
ama no kawanami
Veiled in haze
Cherries on the peak
At dawning:
Slipping through scarlet are
The whitecaps on the River of Heaven.
