KKS IV: 214

A poem from a poetry competition at Prince Koresada’s house.

山里は秋こそことにわびしけれしかのなくねにめをさましつつ

yamazato Fa
aki koso kotoni
wabisikere
sika no naku ne ni
me wo samesitutu
In a mountain village
The autumn, especially,
Is lonely.
The braying of the deer
Continually awakens me.

Mibu no Tadamine
壬生忠岑
