Bird cherry.


yuki fukaki
kakine no mume no
ika ni shite
nao uzumorenu
ka ni wa sakuran
Deep with the snow is
The plum blossom by my brushwood fence:
O, what will become of it—
Still buried
Will its fragrance bloom forth?

The Former Kinugasa Minister of the Centre [Kinugasa no Ieyoshi 衣笠家良 (1192-1264)]
