The design comes from a Hiroshige series pairing landscapes with poems from the 11th-century poetry anthology "Wakan rōeishū" 和漢朗詠集.

I can't find a transcription or translation of the poem on this print, but it looks like there is a book that translates the whole anthology into English, entitled "Japanese and Chinese Poems to Sing: The Wakan Roei Shu".
