Snow view of Asakusa Park, c. 1910.

Now that the snowflakes
have spread their mantle of white
regardless of place,
flowers seem to be blooming
even on rocky ledges.

– Ki no Akimine (c. 850 AD), Kokin Wakasu: The First Imperial Anthology of Japanese Poetry, translated by Helen Craig McCullough, 1985
