KKS I: 63 [In reply.] if today I had / not come tomorrow the blooms / would have fallen like / snow thought they lay unmelted / would I still see them as petals [-Ariwara no Narihira] (Rodd 2017, pp. 66-67)

KKS I: 63 [His reply.] Had I not come today, / they would have fallen tomorrow / like drifting snowflakes. / Though they have not yet melted, / they are scarcely true flowers. [-Ariwara no Narihira] (McCullough 1985, pp. 25-26)
