茶の湯には梅寒菊に黄葉み落ち青竹枯木あかつきの霜

chanoyu ni wa ume kangiku ni ni kibami-ochi aodake kareki akatsuki no shimo

Chanoyu accords: with fragrant plum blossoms; cold chrysanthemums; falling gold leaves; reaching blue bamboo; and the fading frost of dawn

Poem

Take care in the manner you whisk the chasen through the tea
The tines of the ’boo shouldn’t scrape the floor of the bowl violently
                   茶を点てば茶筅に心よくつけて茶碗の底へ強くあたるな
cha o tateba chasen ni kokoro yoku tsukete chawan no soko e tsuyoku ataru na

 習ひをばちりあくたぞと思へかし、書物は反古腰張にせよ  

narai oba chiri akuto zo to omoekashi kakimono wa hago koshibari ni se yo 


It is wise to think teachings become dust and dirt:

In the end, our notes and books are best used to line tearoom walls as paper skirt
