Teiji-in uta’awase 17

かけてのみみつつぞしのぶむらさきにいくしほそめしふぢのはなぞも

kakete nomi
mitsutsu zo shinobu
murasaki ni
iku shiosomeshi
fuji no hana zo mo
Hanging there do I
Ever gaze with wonder on
Their violet hues—
How many dippings dyed
The wisteria blossom so?

みなそこにしづめるはなのかげみればはるのふかくもなりにけるかな

minasoko ni
shizumeru hana no
kage mireba
haru no fukaku mo
narinikeru kana
When in the water’s depths
Sunken blossoms’
Shapes I see,
How deep the springtime
Has become!
