SKKS I: 13

A spring poem, presented in a hundred poem sequence during the reign of former Emperor Sutoku.

若菜摘む袖とぞ見ゆるかすがのゝとぶひのゝべの雪のむらぎえ

wakana tsumu
sode to zo miyuru
kasugano no
tobu hi no nobe no
yuki no muragie
Plucking fresh herbs,
Sleeves do I seem to see
On the plain at Kasuga,
Where the sun dances in the fields
On the patchy snow…

Former Consultant Norinaga

SKKS I: 35

Composed on evening haze.

なごの海の霞のまよりながむれば入る日をあらふ沖つ白波

nago no umi no
kasumi no ma yori
nagamureba
iru hi o arau
oki tsu shiranami
At the sea at Nago
Between the hazy gaps
I gaze:
Bathed by the setting sun
Are the whitecaps in the offing.
