"The arrival of delight times" Japanese calligraphy




 結ぶうへに    いや張りつめし厚氷
 春のめぐみに  解けてあとなし
  勝海舟


 Water is frozen over   ice more thicker
 By blessing of spring    it has thawed and disappeared
  
Katsu Kaishū


 This is written by
Hiragana letter and Kanzi, Regular script.

 The
tanka was created by "Last Samurai" Kaishū Katsu (1823-1899).

 He terminated the Samurai Age by himself, his hands.
 The time (
Edo era) that should be over.
 He realized that it came.

 Hardships continued in the process.
 The new times opened a curtain thanks to his dedication.
 This poetry is the life.



 He was a revolutionist.
 And he was true and great "
SAMURAI".

 His passion spirit had thawed the ice of the cold era.


 Imperial rescript for him
 幕府ノ末造ニ方リ体勢ヲ審ニシテ振武ノ術ヲ講シ皇運ノ中興ニ際シ

 旧主ヲ輔ケテ解職ノ実ヲ挙ク爾後顕官ニ歴任シテ勲績愈々彰ル今ヤ溘亡ヲ
 聞ク曷ソ軫悼ニ勝ヘン茲ニ侍臣ヲ遣シ賻賵ヲ齎シテ以テ弔慰セシム

  1. Your explanation about this tanka poem and about his dedication for the epoch is touching, as well as the expression with literary style of the poem. 氷が結ぶ, such a delicate description.
