This is my rough translation.
Ryōkō yanō Sōgan haisho
Koredoki Kan'ei jukyu-nen
Ｓhihō hachimen rai ya, senpu ta
Myōtō rai ya, myōtō ta, antō rai ya, antō ta
Shinju kenju mizukara za shi sho wo shikashite
san wo kou
The countruside monk of Ryōkō(in), Sōgan wrote it among his prayers
In the 19th Year of Kan'ei (1642)
If it comes from all directions, it is the whirlwind
If bright comes, it is the bright (morning), if dark comes, it is the dark (night)
The pearl kindly waits for somebody's esteemed written praise.
Now, I have to take a coffein boost.
