KKS IV: 243

A poem composed at a poetry competition held by Her Majesty, the Empress Dowager, during the Reign of the Kanpyō Emperor.


aki no no no
kusa no tamoto ka
Fana susuki
Fo ni idete maneku
sode to miyuran
In the autumn fields
Does the grass have cuffs
Of flowering miscanthus?
The ripe ears are beckoning
, or so they seem.

Ariwara no Muneyana
