Description: A 'wide' tanzaku-ban Hiroshige print in the kacho-e (bird-flower picture) genre.

The poem - 白鷺下田千點雪 黄鴬上樹一枝花 - can perhaps be rendered: "White herons fly low across the fields, like a thousand flakes of snow; Yellow birds perch on the tree, like flowers clustered on a branch" (translation by the MFA).

The feathers of the heron are done with kara-zuri embossing.
