    I like To the fields in spring time though I prefer the transaltion done by Steven Carter in his book Traditional Japanese Poetry - An anthology as the language he uses in more suggestive. That said, I don't know which is a truer representation of the original.

The Sturdy Men

The sturdy men
Leave for the hunt;
The maidens
Trail the hems of scarlet skirts
Across the clean swept beach.

From The Bay At Tago

From the bay at Tago
I see, when gazing out,
Pure white-
On the heights of Fuji's peak-
The snow has fallen
