Round Eight

秋風の吹来る声はやまながらなみ立ちかへるおとぞきこゆる

fukikuru koe wa
yama nagara
nami tachikaeru
oto zo kikoyuru
The autumn breeze’s
Cry comes gusting;
And in the mountains,
The sound of waves washing back and forth
Comes to my ears.

すみの江の松を秋風吹くからにこゑうちそふる沖つ白なみ

oki tsu shiranami
At Suminoe
The pines by the autumn breeze
Are blown, so
The sound lies atop
The whitecaps in the offing.

Spring

Round 1

Left

やま風にとくる氷のひまごとにうち出づる浪や春の初花

yamakaze ni
tokuru kōri no
hima goto ni
uchi’izuru nami ya
haru no hatsuhana
With the mountain breeze
The melting ice from
Every crack
Bursts out in waves, perhaps
These are the first blooms of spring?

春霞たつひの風のいとなれや滝のをとけて玉とみだるる

harugasumi
tatsu hi no kaze no
ito nare ya
taki no o tokete
tama to midaruru
The haze of spring
Arises with the breeze this day, so
Will its streamers with
The melting waterfall’s threaded
Jewels become confused?

Horikawa-in Enjo Awase 9

人しれぬ思ひありそのはま風に浪のよるこそいはまほしけれ

hito shirenu
omoi ariso no
hamakaze ni
nami no yoru koso

Unknown to all
My passion burns—toward a rocky
Beach the breeze
Brings waves–that
I would tell you!

In reply.

おとにきくたかしの浜のあだ波はかけじや袖のぬれもこそすれ

oto ni kiku
takashi no hama no
adanami wa
kakeji ya sode no
nure mo koso sure
By repute
Upon Takashi Beach
Break faithless waves, so
Had I not better keep away? Lest my sleeves
Should end up soaked!

SKKS VI: 704

Composed on the conception of the evening of the year by the sea, at the residence of the Tsuchimikado Palace Minister.

ゆくとしをゝじまのあまのぬれ衣かさねて袖になみやかくらん

yuku toshi o
ojima no ama no
nuregoromo
kasnete sode ni
nami ya kakuran
The parting year covers me with
Regret, as at Ojima the fisherfolk’s
Drenched robes are
Laid atop each other, with sleeves
Still washed by waves, it seems…

Koresada shinnō-ke uta’awase 31

あきかぜになみやたつらんあまのがはすぐるまもなくつきのながるる

akikaze ni
nami ya tatsuramu
ama no kawa
sukuru ma mo naku
tsuki no nagaruru
Might it be the autumn wind that
Has raised the waves upon
The River of Heaven?
There’s no space to pass for
The moon, flowing by…

つき見ればちぢにものこそかなしけれ我がみひとつのあきにはあらねど

tsuki mireba
chiji ni mono koso
kanashikere
wa ga mi hitotsu no
aki ni wa aranedo
When I gaze upon the moon
So many are my sources of
Sadness;
Though, it is not I, alone, who
Is faced with autumn…

A wave of chill in the heart due to snow (依雪波心寒)

nami no kokoro ni
samusa wo zo somu

Falls white snow;
It vanishes, yet
The waves’ hearts are
Dyed with cold.

ふる雪に波の心もさむからし風とかくれやへたにだによる

furu yuki ni
nami no kokoro mo

Feta ni dani yoru
With the falling snow
The waves’ hearts, too,
Must be so cold;
Do they hide from the wind
Rushing to the shore?
