KYS III: 250

Composed on autumn leaves.

よそに見る峰の紅葉や散りくるとふもとの里は嵐をぞまつ

yoso ni miru
mine no momidi ya
tirikuru to
Fumoto no sato Fa
arasi wo zo matu
Seen afar
Upon the peaks, are the scarlet leaves
Scattering down-
The houses at the mountain’s foot
Await the wild storm winds.

Director of the Department of Shrines [Minamoto no] Akinaka
