Summer grasses as the season wears on

あさみどりむらむら見えし若草の夏とともにぞふかく成りける

Pale green and
Seeming to cluster all together
The fresh sprouting grass stalks
And the summer, too,
Have grown deeper.

夏草はかりはつさるとみしかど鹿ふすばかりなりも行くかな

The summer grasses
Have started to be reaped, or
So it seems, yet
The deer simply to rest
Upon them, now make their way!
