わたの原 漕(こ)ぎ出(い)でて 見れば 久方(ひさかた)の 雲居(くもゐ)にまがふ 沖(おき)つ白波(しらなみ)
As I row out to the open sea,
And look around out there,
I can vividly see
The waves as white as the clouds are
Rising tall and high as ever.
By Tadamichi Fujiwara
Translated by Kota Nakako
As I row out into the open sea and look around, I find the waves as white as clouds are rising high as ever.
