はるふかきいろこそなけれやまぶきのはなにこころをまづぞそめつる

haru fukaki
iro koso nakere
yamabuki no
hana ni kokoro o
mazu zo sometsuru
In the depths of spring,
Their hues, indeed, are lacking:
The kerria
Blooms have my heart
Dyed first!

かぜふけばおもほゆるかなすみのえのきしのふぢなみいまやさくらむ

kaze fukeba

kishi no fujinami
ima ya sakuramu
When the wind blows—that
Is when I wonder if at
Suminoe’s
Shore the wisteria waves
Are blooming now?

さだめなく吹く風なれば池水のきしをめぐりてよする藤なみ

Inconstant is
The gusting wind, so
By the pondwater’s
Bank and all along it
Break wisteria waves…

藤なみのかからぬ岸のなければやこぎくる舟のよるひまのなき

Untouched by wisteria waves
Such a bank
Is there not one?
Come rowing, the boats
Have not a moment to make shore.
