by Bansui Doi (1871 - 1952)

春高楼の 花の宴
Language: Japanese (日本語) 
春高楼の      花の宴
めぐる盃      かげさして
千代の松が枝   わけいでし
むかしの光     いまいずこ

秋陣営の       霜の色
鳴き行く雁の    数見せて
植うるつるぎに  照りそいし
むかしの光     いまいずこ

今荒城の       夜半の月
かわらぬ光      たがためぞ
垣にのこるは    ただかずら
松に歌うは      ただ嵐

天上影は       かわらねど
栄枯は移る     世の姿
写さんとてか   今もなお
嗚呼荒城の     夜半の月

Romaji version:

Haru kōrō no hana no en
Meguru sakazuki kage sashite
Chiyo no matsugae wake-ideshi
Mukashi no hikari ima izuko

Aki jin’ei no shimo no iro
Naki-yuku kari no kazu misete
Uuru tsurugi ni teri-soishi
Mukashi no hikari ima izuko

Ima kōjō no yowa no tsuki
Kawaranu hikari ta ga tame zo
Kaki ni nokoru wa tada kazura
Matsu ni utō wa tada arashi

Tenjō kage wa kawaranedo
Eiko wa utsuru yo no sugata
Utsusan toteka ima mo nao
Aa kōjō no yowa no tsuki
