haru fukaki
nodera tachikomuru

kane no oto kana
Deep in springtime
All around a temple ‘mong the meadows arises
Evening haze,
Lingering to envelop
The tolling of the bell!

niji no tatsu
fumoto no sugi wa
kumo ni kiete
mine yori haruru
yūdachi no ame

Cedars in the foothills,
Vanishing in the clouds
Clearing from the peaks,
With an evening shower of rain.
