SKKS XV: 1338

From the Minase 15 Love Poem Poetry Competition.

野邊のつゆはいろもなくてやこぼれつるそでよりすぐるおぎのうは風

nobe no tsuyu wa
iro mo nakute ya
koboretsuru
sode yori suguru
ogi no uwa kaze
Do the dewdrops in the fields
Have no hue at all?
Drenched
My sleeves are brushed
By the wind over the bush-clover.

Former Abbot Jien
慈円
