さくはなのちりつつうかぶみづのおもにいかでうき草ねざしそめけむ

saku hana no
chiritsutsu ukabu
mizu no omo ni
ikade ukikusa
nezashi somekemu
Blossom blooming and
Ever scattering, and floating
Upon the surface of the water,
So why might the waterweed
Begin to put down roots?

まつひとはつねならなくにほととぎすおもひのほかになかばうからむ

matsu hito wa
tsune naranaku ni
hototogisu
omoi no hoka ni
nakaba ukaramu
The one awaiting you is
Ever changing,
O, cuckoo, but
If, my longing you should not meet
With your song, how I will hate you!
