SKKS IV: 298

From the [Rōjaku] Fifty Round Poetry Contest.

きのふまでよそにしのびしゝたおぎのすゑ葉のつゆに秋風ぞ吹

kinō made
yoso ni shinobishi
shitaogi no
sueha no tsuyu ni
akikaze zo fuku
Up to yesterday
’ Twas hidden on the other side:
Beneath the trees, upon the grasses
Dew tipped fronds
Blows the autumn wind.

Fujiwara no Masatsune (1170-1221)
