KYS III: 173

Composed on the topic of ‘autumn wind at a hut in the fields’, when he had gone with various people to Lord Morokata’s residence at Unozu.

ゆふさればかどたのいなばおとづれてあしのまろやにあきかぜぞ吹く

yū sareba
kadota no inaba
otozurete
ashi no maroya ni
akikaze zo fuku
When the evening comes
The rice-seedling fronds before my door
Sound out—
Around this reed-roofed hut
The autumn wind is blowing.

Middle Councellor Tsunenobu

はまちどりあきとしなればあさぎりにかたまどはしてなかぬ日ぞなき

hamachidori
aki to shinareba
asagiri ni
kata madowashite
nakanu hi zo naki
The plovers on the beach:
When the autumn comes,
In the morning mists
Do lose their way;
No day dawns without their cries…

あきくればみやまざとこそわびしけれよるはほたるをともしびにして[1]

aki kureba
miyamazato koso
wabishikere
yoru wa hotaru o
tomoshibi ni shite
When the autumn comes
My hut deep in the mountains
Is lonelier by far;
At night with fireflies
For my lantern.

夢路にはなれし宿見る現にて宇津の山辺の蔦ふける庵

yumeji ni wa
nareshi yado miru
utsutsu nite
utsu no yamabe no
tsuta fukeru io
Upon the path of dreams
I saw a house I used to know so well;
In reality, it is
Near to Utsu Moutain,
A hut all twined with ivy…

あはれなる野しまかさきのいほりかな露おく袖に浪もかけけり

awarenaru
nojima ga saki no
iori kana
tsuyu oku sode ni
nami mo kakekeri
Mournful
Nojima Point is where
My hut lies;
Upon my dew-dropped sleeves
Have rushed the waves…
