GSIS I: 3

Composed in the conception of spring having come from the East.

東路は勿来の関もあるものをいかでか春の越えて来つらん

adumadi Fa
nakoso no seki mo
aru mono wo
ikadeka Faru no
koetekituran
Upon the Eastern roads
Come not to the barrier of Nakoso,
They say, so
How is it that Spring
Has crossed to come to here?

Minamoto no Morokata (1035-1081)
