78. 花見よりかへりの人に茶の湯せば、花鳥の絵をも花も置くまじ
hanami yori kaeri no hito ni cha no yu seba, kachō no e o mo hana mo oku maji

When receiving guests
For chanoyu fresh from a
Flower-viewing foray
Avoid nature paintings
and flowers in your alcove display

An unannounced guest is no cause for dismay,
With an honest temae, allow spontaneity to be the order of the day

75. 三幅の軸を掛けるは、中を掛け、軸先を掛け、次に軸本
sanpuku no jiku wo kakeru wa, naka wo kake, jikusaki wo kake, tsugi ni jikumoto

A set of three scrolls
Are hung in an order thus:
First hang the centre
Then the last scroll & conclude
Back at the first scroll, no fuss

100 Poems of Chanoyu・Poem #47

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
