KKS IV: 235

Composed and presented at the maidenflower [poetry] competition at the Suzaku Palace.

人の見る事やくるしきをみなへし秋ぎりにのみたちかくるらむ

Fito no miru
koto ya kurusiki
wominaFesi
akigiri ni nomi
tatikakururan
For man to gaze on you,
Is it so painful,
Maidenflower,
That in the autumn mists
You must hide away?

Tadamine
忠岑
