KYS VII: 399

Composed in the conception of Love at the Poetry Competition at Lord [Fujiwara no] Saneyuki’s house.

いつとなく戀にこがるるわが身より立つや淺閒の煙なるらん

itu to naku
koFi ni kogaruru
wa ga mi yori
tatu ya asama no
keburi naruran
There is no end
To my yearning flames of love
From my breast
Rising as does Asama’s
Smoke, I feel.

KYS V: 333

When the former Ise Shrine Priestess was there and commanded that he join in a game of ishina tori awase, he composed this in the conception of celebration.

くもりなく豐さかのぼる朝日には君ぞつかへん萬代までに

kumorinaku
toyo sakanoboru
asaFi ni Fa
kimi zo tukaFen
yorodu yo made ni
Without a trace of cloud
The bright, sky-climbing
Morning sun
Does so to serve my Lady,
For a myriad years.

KYS V: 311

Composed on the spirit of Felicitation as part of a hundred poem sequence.

君が代は松の上葉にをく露のつもりてよもの海となるまで

kimi ga yo Fa
matu no uFaba ni
woku tuyu no
tumorite yomo no
umi to naru made
My Lord’s reign:
Upon the pine tree tops
The falling dew
Builds up and on all sides
A sea becomes-until then…
