San’i minamoto no hirotsune ason uta’awase 7

A profusion of deutzia flowers in full bloom

白妙に卯花さけるかきねをばつもりし雪とおもひけるかな

A spread of white mulberry cloth,
The deutzias have bloomed
Along my brushwood fence
Drifting snow is piled, or
So it seems!

みわたせばたかねののべのうつぎ原みな白妙にさきにけるかな

mina shirotae ni
sakinikeru kana
When I gaze across
The high-peak meadows
A field of deutzia,
All as white as mulberry cloth,
Have bloomed there.
