Reading of text,(Short poem,Senryu)

妓樓古今發同会 Girou Kokin Hatsu-doukai

The First Nine Star Fortune Telling of the Year in a Girou (Geisha House) Past and Present
灰に書くことみなうそよ
さよしぐれ
Hai ni kaku koto mina uso yo,
Sayoshigure

Everything what I write on the ash is a lie
Light shower on a night
(This last word does not have a real meaning, only serves as a word-pun at the end of the Senryu.)

Signature in my reading
春常畫  Shunjou Ga (Picture of SHunjo)

Katsukawa Shunjou ?-1871, Ukiyoe artist.

With regards,
I.Nagy

I think maybe you meant "Shunsho"(1726-93), the founder of the Katsukawa School?

This print looks like a modern reproduction of an 18th century design.
