いろはにほへと

ちりぬるをわか

よたれそつねな

らむうゐのおく

やまけふこえて

あさきゆめみし

ゑひもせす (heian period)

 

Although its scent still lingers on

the form of a flower has scattered away

For whom will the glory

of this world remain unchanged?

Arriving today at the yonder side

of the deep mountains of evanescent existence

We shall never allow ourselves to drift away

intoxicated, in the world of shallow dreams (translation by Ruishi Abe)
