<春-雪解の頃 / Spring-around melting-snow>

幽かなる雪解けの靄のたちのぼる雲湧く谷に春は来にけり

melting snow…

haze rising up faintly

in the air

spring has come into the valley 

where clouds well up 

2

憂ひ満つ豪雪のとき越えたれば雪消の野辺は滴り奏づ

pass

the days of heavy snow

filled with anxiety…

the path of melting snowfields

harmonizes dripping

3 

待つほどを越えて生くれば憂きものの霧氷と結ぶ白冴の朝

beyond waiting

I meet a graceful morning

with hoarfrost

my anxiety being

refined to purification

4  

あくがれし心も失せて谷深く棲みて眺むる霧氷うつくし

yet, now

yearning is gone…

I have dwelled

in the deep valley and

seen the beauteous hoarfrost

5  

越冬の薔薇も雪解にのぞきたり 棘鋭きに深雪(みゆき)痛しも

snow melting…

over-wintered roses are

visible

sharp thorns must have been

painful for the deep piled snow

6  

耳に満つ雪消の滴(しずく)たつたつと未明に籠り書より逸さす

dripping down

the melting snow’s echo

fills me

and makes me look

away from the book at dawn

7  

巡り来て春の彼岸に月満つる雲に朧は謎かけの如

time waxing

the moon becomes full 

in Spring Equinox Week

nebulous clouds 

 seem to be mysterious 

Note: Spring Equinox Week is one of the most significant events for Japanese Buddhists.

8 

しづけさに疑念ひろまる深き夜に仰ぎまづ見る春の月読

in deeper night…

silence spreading the doubt

first of all

I look up to the moon

God’s light in the spring sky

9

拒絶するは犯罪臭か人間のエゴのふくらみ恐ろしきもの

what I reject

is the strange smell of crimes

expansion 

of human egoism 

how horrible it is! 

10

無慚なる無差別殺戮の侵攻に子を喰らふサトゥルヌス見る

before my eyes

Saturnus eating children

in a cruel

and shameless invasion

with indiscriminate killing
