Sanekata Shū 229

When the moon was shining brightly and I was conversing with a lady, we heard the plovers call:

濱千鳥いづこに鳴くぞ月まつと

Fama tidori
iduko ni naku zo
tuki matu to
Plovers on the beach:
Where do they cry?
While waiting for the moon…

I said, and she concluded:

あかしの浦とおもふなるべし

akasi no ura to
omoFunarubesi
Bright Akashi Bay
Must be their thought!
