Winter 46

Left (Win).

浦風やとはに浪こす濱松のねにあらはれてなくちどりかな

ura kaze ya
towa ni nami kosu
hamamatsu no
ne ni arawarete
naku chidori kana
The breeze across the bay
Endlessly breaks waves upon
The beach-bound pines
Washed roots, as comes the sound of
Plover calls…

Right

志賀の浦や氷もいくえゐるたづの霜の上毛に雪は降つゝ

shiga no ura ya
kōri mo ikue
iru tazu no
shimo no uwage ni
yuki wa furitsutsu
In the bay at Shiga
Many-fold the layers of ice:
There, the cranes,
Frost upon their feathers stand
In the ever-falling snow.
