思ひあまりながむる空の掻き曇り月さへ我を厭ひつるかな

Filled full with love
The sky on which I turn my gaze
Is drowned in darkness;
Even the moon from me
Does shy!

Round my night-chilled home;
Starting from sleep
How much more do
I love her now…

SKKS XVII: 1623

When Lord Yoshinobu had gone to Ōharano, he met someone whom it seemed strange to find living in such a mountain retreat; when Yoshinobu asked him how he had come to be there:

世中を背きにとてはこしかどもなを憂きことは大原の里

yo no naka o
somuki ni tote wa
koshikadomo
nao uki koto wa
ōhara no sato
“The mundane world
I will abandon,” I said and
Came here, yet
Still are there many sorrows
In this estate at Ōhara.

咲きにけり苗代水に影見えて田中の里の山吹の花

sakinikeri
naFasiro midu ni
kage miete
tanaka no sato no
yamabuki no Fana
So, they have bloomed;
Among the waters of the seedling beds
Do I see the light;
At the dwelling among the rice-fields
Of the kerria blooms.
