早春賦 [So-shun-Fu] – The Poem of Early Spring (1913)
Lyrics: Yoshimaru Kazumasa Composing: Nakata Akira
—————————————————————————————

although having said that
spring has come
it is merely oratorical
it is still so cold
when we have the wind
bushwarblers that are in the valley
are giving heart to the spring field
but they have yet to sing
because they would size up
the time has not still come
they have given it time
and kept still in the bush silently
because they would size up
the time has not still come
they have given it time
and kept still in the bush silently
 
the ice begins thawing
the leeds start sprouting
then we feel the spring has come
but don’t misread the situation
it never welcome you
as anyting but a diversion
yesterday and today that
it has been still snowy
yesterday and today that
we still have been under the snowy sky
 
if someone doesn’t say
the spring has come
if something doesn’t give
the indication of the spring
we would be uncouscious, if not so
though once we hear, we read the sign
we would be aching
and get all excited
about the situation of the spring
we begin to be transported with its joy
in these days
we begin to be transported with the spring joy
in these days

春は名のみの 風の寒さや
谷の鶯 歌は思えど
時にあらずと 声も立てず
時にあらずと 声も立てず
 
氷解け去り 葦は角ぐむ
さては時ぞと 思うあやにく
今日も昨日も 雪の空
今日も昨日も 雪の空
 
春と聞かねば 知らでありしを
聞けば急かるる 胸の思いを
いかにせよとの この頃か
いかにせよとの この頃か
