SKKS V: 543

Around the Ninth Month, when he was in Minase for a time: sent by return to someone who said their tears fell like the autumn leaves on Mt. Arashi.


momijiba o
sa koso arashi no
kono yamamoto mo
ame to furu nari
Those autumn leaves
From Arashi must, indeed,
Have been driven:
For in these foothills, too,
They fall as does the rain!

Provisional Middle Councillor [Fujiwara no] Kintsune (1171 – 1244)
