MYS XI: 2472

A poem expressing feelings in metaphor.

見わたしの三室の山の巌菅ねもころ我れは片思ぞする

miwatashi no
mimuro no yama no
ipapo suge
nemokoro ware pa
kata’omopi zo suru
As I gaze
Upon Mimuro Mountain’s
Hardy grasses on the crags
How fondly do my
Thoughts dwell on you.

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.

Autumn 36

Left (Win).

時雨つゝ袖だにほさぬ秋の日にさこそ三室の山はそむらめ

shiguretsutsu
sode dani hosanu
aki no hi ni
sa koso mimuro no
yama wa somurame
Drizzling on and on, so
My sleeves are never dry
On this autumn day
Surely, the mount of Mimuro
Must be yet more deeply dyed.

久方の月の桂の下紅葉宿かる袖ぞ色にいでゆく

hisakata no
tsuki no katsura
no
shimo momiji
yado karu sode zo
iro ni ideyuku
On the eternal
Moon, beneath the silver trees
Scarlet leaves
Find brief lodging: my sleeves
Are marked with similar hues.
