KYS I: 2

Kinzane composed this in the conception of the beginning of spring.

春たちて木末にきえぬ白雪はまだきに咲ける花かとぞ見る

Faru tatite
kozue ni kienu
sira yuki Fa
madaki ni sakeru
Fana ka to zo miru
Spring has risen and
On the treetops still remains
Snow-white-
Early blooming
Flowers appear to be.

Master of the Crown Prince’s Household [Fujiwara no] Kinzane
