SPRINGTIME) AROUND THE CORNER
by Otomo no Sakanoue (early 8th c.)
from Ariake: Poems of Love and Longing by the Women Courtiers of Ancient Japan, Liza Dalby, Chronicle Books, p.20.

"Don't you cut the brush
    Growing on the riverbank
    High above Saho River;
Leave it as it is,
    So when springtime comes around
    We'll have a place to hide."
