鶯はむべもなくらん花ざくら咲くとみしまにうつろひにけり

The bush warbler,
Indeed, does seem to sing among
The cherry blossoms, that
In the moment that I saw them bloom
Did quite fade away.

はる霞たなびく野辺のわか菜にもなりみてしかな人もつむやと

Spring haze
Drifting through the fields over
The new herbs
I would become—
For then she might pick me, perhaps…
