The sea,--
Something to look at
When we are angry.”

The lofty mountains and the seas,
Being mountains, being seas,
Both exist and are real.
But frail as flowers are the lives of men,
Passing phantoms of this world.”

Winter is the better season.
Such is human reason.

“An Elegy

A thousand times must we deplore
The lost will never come to life again;
Even as flowing water runs away,
Returning nevermore.

Lady Kanin”

“Sake

The jewel which brightly shines at night
Is precious, but cannot measure up
To the delights of drinking sake,
Drowning one's troubles in the cup.

Otomo no Tabito”

To what may man's life be compared?
To a boat which rowed away,
Far in the sea, and left no track,
In the morning of the day.

Shami Mansai”
