Left

霜がれの枝となわびそ白雪を花にやとひてみれどもあかず

shimogare no
eda to na wabi so
shirayuki o
hana ni ya toite
miredomo akazu
For the frost-burned
Branches, grieve not, for
White snows
As blossom will visit them, and
The sight will never sate.

嵐ふく山下里にふる雪はとくむめの花咲くかとぞ見る

arashi fuku
yamashitazato ni
furu yuki wa
toku mume no hana
saku ka to zo miru
The storm wind blows
Upon the village ‘neath the mountains, where
Fallen snow,
Long since, had plum blossom
Made seem to bloom?
