SKKS X: 905

A poem from a folding screen in the Engi period.

草まくらゆふ風さむくなりにけり衣うつなるやどやからまし

kusamakura
yukaze samuku
narinikeri
koromo utsu naru
yado ya karamashi
Pillowed on grass,
The evening wind grows chiller
Still;
With the sound of fulling clothes
Shall I, perhaps, find lodging?

Tsurayuki
貫之
