Sanekata Shū 6

When at a mountain retreat, on hearing the chirping of the evening cicadas.

葉をしげみゝやまのかげやまがふらむあくるもしらぬひぐらしの聲

Fa wo sigemi
miyama no kage ya
magaFuramu
akuru mo siranu
Figurasi no kowe
Do the leaves in such profusion in
The mountains cast their shade that
Confused, perhaps, and
Unknowing of the dawn,
The evening cicadas chirp on?
