Horikawa hyakushu 1412

足柄の山の紅葉葉散るなへに清見が関は秋風そぞ吹く

ashigara no
yama no momijiba
chiru nae ni
kiyomi ga seki wa
akikaze zo fuku
At Ashigara,
The mountain is all scarlet leaves:
Just when they fall, at
The barrier of Kiyomi
Blows the autumn wind.

Minamoto no Moroyori (1068-1139)
源師頼

Horikawa Hyakushu 517

夏の日も涼しかりけり松が崎これや氷室のわたりならん

natsu no hi mo
suzushikarikeri
matsugasaki
kore ya himuro no
watari naruran
Even the summer days
Are cool in
Matsugasaki
For there is an ice-house
Hereabouts.

FGS V: 522

風寒みはだれ霜降る秋の夜は山下とよみ鹿ぞ鳴くなる

kaze samumi
hadarejimo furu
aki no yo wa
yamashita toyomi
shika zo nakunaru
How chill the wind
Dusting frost
On this autumn night;
The foothills echoing with
The belling of the stags…
