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

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

Poem 72

花入に大小あらば見合せよ、曲尺を外して 打つが曲尺也
hanaire ni ōshō araba miawase yo, kane wo hazushite utsu ga kane nari

Where to place a hook to hang a vase big or small?
The correct kane comes with experience: Look!
It’s not measured on the wall

For a chakin’s size, measure in kanejaku 1 shaku long;
