Summer 16

Left (Tie).

たがためになくや五月の夕とて山郭公猶またるらむ

ta ga tame ni
naku ya satsuki no
yûbe tote
yama hototogisu
nao mataruramu
For whose sake
Is that song? On a Fifth Month
Evening
A cuckoo from the mountains
Is yet awaited.

Right

五月雨の月はつれなきみ山より獨もいづる郭公かな

samidare no
tsuki wa tsurenaki
miyama yori
hitori mo izuru
hototogisu kana
In the early summer rain
Heartless hides the moon
In the mountain deeps, from
Whence emerges a solitary
Cuckoo.
