余所などへ花をおくらば、其花は開きすぎしはやらぬものなり
yoso nado ni hana o okuraba, sono hana wa hiraki sugishi wa yaranu mono nari

Remember this tune when gifting flowers to the host of chanoyu:
Flowers at or past full bloom have no place in the tea room

Poem 73
竹釘は皮目を上にうつぞかし、皮目を下になすこともあり
takekugi wa kawame o ue ni utsu zo kashi kawame o shita ni nasu koto mo ari

Place a bamboo hook with the skin of the ‘boo up and pith facing down;
But at times it may suit to swap them the other way ’round
