Cherry Blossom

Left (Tie)

わがそのへいざかへりなむあさがほのひとはなさくらのはなりにけり

wa ga sono e
iza kaerinamu
asagao no
hito hana sakura
no wa narinikeri
To my garden,
Well, I must return, for
A morning glory’s
Single bloom in flower seems
To have turned it to a meadow.

はるはきぬたねにまくべきいねはなさくらのはなへにおろしはててよ

haru wa kinu
tane ni makubeki
ine wa nasa
kura no hanae ni
oroshihateteyo
Spring has come, and
The seeds must be sown;
No seedlings sprout
Beside the storehouse
Sow them all!
