KKS IV: 230

Composed and presented at the maidenflower [poetry] competition at the Suzaku Palace.

をみなへし秋のの風にうちなびき心ひとつをたれによすらむ

wominaFesi
aki no nokaze ni
utinabiki
kokoro Fitotu wo
tare ni yosuran
The maidenflower,
With a breeze across the Autumn fields,
Waves back and forth;
Having but a single heart,
To whom does she incline, I wonder?

The Minister of the Left [Fujiwara no Tokihira].
