Brushwood

冬寒み霜はおけども椎しばのときはの色はあせずもあるかな

fuyu samumi
shimo wa okedomo
shiishiba no
tokiwa no iro wa
asezu mo aru kana
In winter’s chill
The frost falls, yet
The brushwood’s
Evergreen hues
Fade not at all…

Imperial Visits to the Fields

冬ふかき野べの御幸のけふしもあれしらふのたかをすゑてけるかな

fuyu fukaki
nobe no miyuki no
kyō shi mo are
shirō no taka o
suetekeru kana
In the depths of winter
An imperial visit to the meadows
Was there today,
Hawks of white
Would be ready there!
