Left (Tie).


arashi fuku
tsuki no aruji wa
ware hitori
hana koso yado to
hito mo tazunure
As the wild wind blows,
The master, gazing at the moon,
Is me, in solitude;
The blossoms and the dwelling, both,
Are what folk come to visit!


Right (Tie).


uki yori wa
sumi yokarikeri
to bakari yo
ato naki shimo ni
sugi tateru niwa
The cruelties of the world
Make it the best place to live,
They say:
No footfalls mar the frost on
My garden, where the cedar stands.
