Autumn 33

Left.

秋風にそよぐ田の面のいねがてにまつ明方の初雁の聲

aki kaze ni
soyogu ta no mo no
ine ga te ni
matsu akekata no
hatsukari no koe
The autumn wind
Rustles o’er the fields
Of rice; sleepless
I await the dawn’s
First goose-call.

Right (Win)

生駒山あらしも秋の色に吹手染の糸のよるぞかなしき

ikoma yama
arashi mo aki no
iro ni fuku
tezome no ito no
yoru zo kanashiki
Upon Ikoma Mountain
The storm wind with autumn’s longing
Hues is gusting;
Hand-dyed thread
Twining in the night is sad, indeed.
