[spring]
Uguisu love birds
May be hidden there—
I’d like to peek into the
plum blossoms
Surrounding my hut.

[summer]
A hotogisu cries
As I make my way
To Kataoka forest--
It flies in and out
Of the treetops.

[autumn]
In the fields, in the mountains,
I was enthralled, so enthralled—
On the way back home
The autumn moon accompanied
me to my bedroom.

[winter]
Proof that last night’s
storm was severe—
Even the tallest pines
Are buried under deep snow.
Winter passes like this in the mountain village.
