Ietaka-kyō hyakuban jika’awase 1

Left. Spring
あら玉の年もかはらぬふるさとの雪のうちにも春はきにけり

yuki no uchi ni mo
haru wa kinikeri
To the fresh jeweled
Year the change has yet to come, yet
Around my familiar home
Even within the snows
The spring is here!

冬ながら花ちる空のかすめるは雲のこなたに春やきつらむ

kumo no konata ni
haru ya kitsuramu
It’s winter now, yet
Are the blossom-scattering skies
Hazed
Beneath the clouds by
The arrival of spring, perhaps?

GSIS VI: 424

Sent around the end of the Twelfth Month from the province of Bizen to the residence of the Controller of Dewa.

都へは年と共にぞ歸るべきやがて春をもむかへがてらに

Along with the year
I must return;
At last, with the spring
Shall I proceed together!

GSIS III: 231

Composed on seeming like the cool of an autumn evening at Lord Toshitsuna’s house.

夏山の楢の葉そよぐ夕暮はことしも秋の心地こそすれ

natuyama no
nara no Fa soyogu
yuFugure Fa
kotosi mo aki no
kokoti koso sure
In the summer mountains
The oak leaves whisper softly
With the evening:
This year, too, autumn
Feels upon me…
