I. The gentle winds at Asuka – That flattered the ladies’ sleeves
Those breezes blow in vain – Now that the court is far removed –

grow – And on the flower-lit path beneath – Lo! A maiden walking!

shone a year ago – But my wife and I who watched
 together – Are divided by the everwidening wastes of time
