KKS IV: 228

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

秋ののにやどりはすべしをみなへし名をむつまじみたびならなくに

aki no no ni
yadori Fa subesi
wominaFesi
na wo mutumazimi
tabi naranaku ni
In an autumn meadow
I would lodge with
The maidenflowers
The name is so appealing-
Though I travel not.

Fujiwara no Toshiyuki
