In the city fields Contemplating cherry-trees... Strangers are like friends
Red morning sky - snail, are you glad of it?
Here I'm here- the snow falling.
Summer night-- even the stars are whispering to each other.
O snail Climb Mount Fuji But slowly, slowly!
In spring rain a pretty girl yawning.
Carrying a poppy he passes through the quarrel.
What a strange thing! to be alive beneath cherry blossoms.
Giddy grasshopper Take care...do not leap and crush These pearls of dewdrop
In the cherry blossom's shade there's no such thing as a stranger.
