Translation

Orange Blossoms
WKRS 171 The orange fruits hang heavy in the mountain rain; / the palm-tree fronts waft coolness of breezes from the lake. -Po Chü’i
WKRS 172 Branches have gold bells attached after the spring rain; / blossoms waft a purple musk along the southern wind.
-Prince Tomohira
WKRS 173 Breaking the odor / From the orange blossoms / That wait for the fifth month to bloom, / I inhale the fragrance of the sleeves / Of a love of long ago.
WKRS 174 Cuckoo, you seek out / The odor of the orange blossoms / As you sing; / Do you mourn a lost love?
(Rimer 1997, pp 66-67)
