KKS II: 129

Composed when, in the last week of the third month, he was travelling through the mountains and saw the blossom flowing along a mountain river.

花ちれる水のまにまにとめくれば山には春もなくなりにけり

Fana tireru
mizu no manima ni
tomekureba
yama ni Fa Faru mo
nakunarinikeri
The scattered petals
Carried on the waters
Answer but one question:
In the mountains, spring
Has passed completely.
