KKS IV: 243

A poem composed at a poetry competition held by Her Majesty, the Empress, during the Kanpyō period.

秋の野の草のたもとか花すすきほにいでてまねく袖と見ゆらむ

aki no no no
kusa no tamoto ka
Fana susuki
Fo ni idete maneku
sode to miyuran
In the autumn fields
Does the grass have cuffs
Of flowering miscanthus?
The ripe ears are beckoning
Sleeves
, or so they seem.
