GSS V: 217

From the Poetry Contest at Prince Koresada’s House.

にはかにも風のすずしくなりぬるか秋立日とはむべもいひけり

niFaka ni mo
kaze no suzushiku
narinuru ka
aki tatsu Fi to Fa
mube mo iFikeri
How swiftly
Cool the breeze
Has turned!
That this day is Autumn’s first
It says so well.

おはらきのもりのくずはもふくかぜにもみぢもあへずちりやしぬらん

oharaki no
mori no kuzuha mo
fuku kaze ni
momiji mo aezu
chiri ya shinuran
In Oharaki
Among the groves, will the kudzu leaves,
When the wind does blow
Parting from the scarlet leaves
Scatter, too, I wonder?

みかきののくさこそなびけよろづよのはじめのあきのかぜのこゑかも

mikaki no no
kusa koso nabike
yorozu yo no
hajime no aki no
kaze no koe kamo
In the fields by the sacred walls
The grasses do sway;
Ten thousand generations’
First autumn
Breeze sounds out!

KKS II: 103

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

霞立春の山辺はとをけれど吹くる風は花の香ぞする

kasumi tatu
Faru no yamabe Fa
towokeredo
Fukikuru kaze Fa
Fana no ka zo suru
Hazes rise
Round the mountains’ sides,
So far away, and yet
The gusting breeze comes
Bearing the scent of blossom.
