Miscellaneous 89

Left (Tie).

世の中を思ふ軒端の忍草いく代の宿と荒れかはてなん

yo no naka o
omou nokiba no
shinobugusa
iku yo no yado to
are ka hatenan
The everyday world stands
In my thoughts, as beneath my eaves,
The ferns, each one a frond of memory:
How many ages has my dwelling stood,
Now falling to desolation?

たまゆらの露も涙もとゞまらずなき人こふる宿の秋風

tamayura no
tsuyu mo namida mo
todomarazu
nakibito kōru
yado no akikaze
Gemlet
Dewdrops and tears both,
Stay not;
She who is gone loved so
This house, brushed by autumn winds…
