Sahyōe no suke sadafumi uta’awase 10

The End of Winter

Left

したぎえのゆきまをみればふゆながらはるのけちかきここちこそすれ

shitagie no
yukima o mireba
fuyu nagara
haru no kechikaki
kokochi koso sure
Melting below,
Gaps in the snow, I see, so
Though ‘tis yet winter
Spring’s sensation closer
Comes, I feel!

Right (Win)

みよしののやまのしらゆきつもるらしふるさとさむくなりまさるなり

miyoshino no
yama no shirayuki
tsumorurashi
furusato samuku
narimasaru nari
On fair Yoshino
Mountain white snow fall
Drifts high, it seems,
For in this ancient place the chill
Grows ever stronger.

SKKS I: 35

Composed on evening haze.

なごの海の霞のまよりながむれば入る日をあらふ沖つ白波

nago no umi no
kasumi no ma yori
nagamureba
iru hi o arau
oki tsu shiranami
At the sea at Nago
Between the hazy gaps
I gaze:
Bathed by the setting sun
Are the whitecaps in the offing.
