Sōgi - Minase Sangin Hyakuin, c. 1488 - First 8 Linked Poems

by NeoDharma

Snow-capped as they are,

The gentle slopes of the mountains

Fade into the hazy mist

At twilight on a spring day.

The river descends far and distant,

Plum-fragrance filling the village.

In a soft river breeze

Stands a single willow tree

Fresh in sprint colour.

At early awn every push of the oar

Is audible from a passing boat.

There must be a moon

Dying in the morning sky

Wrapped in a heavy fog.

The ground is covered with frost,

The autumn is drawing to its close.

In a sorrowful voice

A cricket is heard singing

Beneath the withering grass.

I paid a call to a friend of mine,

Taking a desolate lane by the hedge.
