SZS V: 303

Composed at the time a hundred poem sequence was presented, during the reign of former Emperor Horikawa.

山里は淋しかりけり木枯らしの吹く夕暮の日暮の声

yamazato Fa
sabisikarikeri
kogarasi no
Fuku yuFugure no
Figurasi no kowe
A mountain dwelling
Seems lonely:
When the chill winter wind
Blows on an evening with
The sunset cicadas’ song…

Fujiwara no Nakazane

Love 64

Left (Tie).

うつろはむ色をかぎりに三室山時雨もしらぬ世を頼むかな

utsurowamu
iro o kagiri ni
mimuroyama
shigure mo shiranu
yo o tanomu kana
The fading
Hues of our passion our end
Do mark: at Mimuro mountain,
A world ignorant of such showers
Is what I long for.

消えわびぬうつろふ人の秋の色に身をこがらしの杜の下露

kiewabinu
utsurou hito no
aki no iro ni
mi o kogarashi no
mori no
shimotsuyu
Fading and gone am I!
My fickle love,
Sated, in autumn hues
Kogarashi Forest, burning with wind
Fanned fire, and drenched in dew.
