Best Poem of Yamabe no Akahito

The Mists Rise Over
The mists rise over
The waters at Asuka;
Memory does not
Pass away so easily.

~~
Asuka gawa
Kawa yodo sarazu
Tatsu kiri no
Omoi sugu beki
Koi ni aranuku ni . . .

To my good friend
Would I show, I thought,
The plum blossoms,
Now lost to sight
Amid the falling snow. . . .
