Subject:Hokusai’s second surimono with three dedications
Posted By: Yura Sun, Jul 26, 2020 IP:

Dear forum members!

I am very much asking for help in translating three dedications (or poems) of poets. I hope this will make it easier to understand this work.
Everything else is known to me:
Katsushika Hokusai (葛飾 北斎) (1760–1849)
Signed – 宗理画 — Sōri ga — Sori III (1794–1798)

Thank you in advance for your help

Dear Yura,
Here is the transliteration and translation of the first slip.
Ansaki ya asamachi
Watari ni tomezu nari
sanya kayoi no
Tōun Shōsei

In front of the hut waiting for morning
Who cannot be stopped,
is the mountain and valley plying warbler
Tōun Shōsei

I hope somebody else can help you with the rest.

With regards,
