see below for a  translation of the above poem
( I have done some changing but I think the general meaning is there )

The origin to three flows.
The origin means The true spirits.
The three flows are Blood, Sweat, and Tears.
The blood (a symbol of sacrificing your own life to the country) for the country.
The sweat (a symbol of hard work) for your family.
The tears (a symbol of Mercy and Kindness) for your comrades and friends.

This poem was a motto of the JIGEN-Ryu Samurais.
Also a Navy officer, Murakami Arashi, (8th Chief Commander of Yokosuka Navy Engineer School) wrote this poem to Yokosuka Navy Base. Since then this poem has became a very Patriotic motto for Navy students.
