幾霜に心ばせをの松飾り

O, heart of a New Year’s pine

to endure so many frosts

* a sprig of pine, here, denotes a New Year’s decoration fixed at an entrance or gateway to signify the presence of toshigami (year-god) which will ensure prosperity and health for that year.

when the nightingale
moves into the pine . . .
voice of the pine
