How many mountains and rivers I have to cross to find the place without loneliness, until then I will continue to search
Kokin Waka Syu [古今和歌集]
The wind from the Valley that melts the ice and snow resembles a wave, blooming flowers signal the start of spring.
Please don't burn the field today, my wife and I are appreciating the freshness of the grass
Picking young green herbs for you and the spring snow is covering my sleeve
6&7 same poem
Bud on the tree as a light green string, clear dew on the branches as a crystal
The Japanese nightingale thinks the snow on the branches are the first flower of the season
Even after breaking the branch of the plum tree, I can still recall its beauty
