あきの野の草のたもとか花薄ほに出でてまねく袖とみゆらん

aki no no no
kusa no tamoto ka
hanasusuki
ho ni idete maneku
sode to miyuran
In the autumn meadows
Are the grasses cuffs
Fronds of silver grass?
The emerging ears beckoning
Sleeves do appear to be, I feel.

山の井は水なきごとぞみえわたる秋の紅葉のちりてかくせば

yama no i wa
mizu naki goto zo
miewataru
aki no momiji no
chirite kakuseba
The mountain wells
Lack water, every one: for
Gazing across
With autumn scarlet scattered
Leaves they are concealed…
