1

日輪はなべて差しきて針槐の房のかがやき谷をうるほす

sunrays

shining on the earth

equally–

black locust flowers cast

peace over the valley

2

花の幾ふさ風にゆれ針槐の甘き香みつる水無月は立つ

June starts

with bunches of flowers

swaying in the wind

and the sweet fragrance of

black locust flowers

3

針槐 君に届くかこの香り我らが痛みもいささかなりと

black locust flowers…

will this scent ever

reach you?

and if it could

what too of our pains?

4

御坊のたまふは法要の積もる卒都婆は盆に焚き魂(たま)迎へませ  

our revered monk said

that stupas accumulated for

the memorial services

should be burnt during the Bon

to welcome the souls

5

総身で空のゆらぎを受けるごと花序ひろげ大花独活咲く

cow parsnips bloom

with their inflorescences

spreading out

as if to catch fluctuation

of the sky

6

ぼろぼろの心ひきずり良き風のふかばとそっと朝戸をあくる

dragging

my torn and tattered heart

I gently open

a door in the morning

hoping for a nice breeze

7 

淡紅の林檎の花に君とたはぶるる夢さむ……窓辺の蝶は

awake from my dream

playing with you

at apple flowers

… what happened to the butterfly

by the window sill?

8

やうやうに朝は来にけり夏の葉の玉露(たまつゆ)のなか遺影微笑む 

at last

morning has come

in a crystal dew

of the summer greenery leaf

your final portrait is smiling.

9

わが前の白くきやかな夏蝶は非業に逝きし君の影かも

A butterfly

with bright white wings

flies before me

Is it your spirit

because of a tragic death?

10

姫空木に舞ひ訪ふ白蝶にかなしき安らぎの影を見む

I see

a shadow of your

sad peace

in the white butterfly flying

around deutzias
