“Cherry tree in bloom color, a red cloak
My dress was red and purple combined with light green, my coat was green and white
The queen, red, as usual. Her kimono was purple and red, with little 'green, pale and dark, and two shades of yellow
The outer garment of the king was the color of grapes, and the undergarment white and green”
