SIS III: 140

When people were composing poems on ‘one’s feelings on arriving at a run-down house in autumn’ at the Kawara estate.


yaFe mugura
sigereru yado no
sabisiki ni
Fito koso mienu
aki Fa kinikeri
Overlaying creepers
Grow thickly on this house,
So desolate,
Folk nowhere to be seen
With the coming of autumn.

The Monk Egyō
