SKKS IV: 323

In the conception of Tanabata.

ほしあひのゆふべすゞしきあまのがはもみぢのはしをわたる秋風

hoshi ai no
yūbe suzushiki
ama no gawa mo
momoji no hashi o
wataru aki kaze
Stars meeting
On this cool evening, where
Over the River of Heaven
On a bridge of scarlet leaves
Crosses the autumn wind.

Provisional Middle Councillor Kintsune (1171-1244)
