GSIS II: 115

Composed on fallen flowers on a mountain path.

櫻花道みえぬ迄ちりにけりいかゞはすべき志賀の山ごえ

sakurabana
miti mienu made
tirinikeri
ikaga Fa subeki
siga no yamagoe
Cherry blossoms
Hide the way
So many have fallen;
What am I to do,
On the path across the Shiga Mountains?

我君の常盤のかげは秋もあらじ月の桂の千世にあふとも

Upon my Lord’s
Evergreen face
Never, shall autumn show,
Though he match the moon’s silver trees’
Thousand Ages.

Not a petal will fall!
In robes printed with
Bamboo,
The palace folk, have
Arranged cherry blossom.
