Dairi no kiku awase 5

The isle of Tamino in Tsu province. Below the chrysanthemum on the suhama was the shape of a woman gathering shellfish, sheltering beneath her sleeves.
田蓑ともいまは求めじたちかへり花の雫にぬれむと思へば

tamino tomo
ima Fa motomezi
taikaFeri
Fana no shiduku ni
nuremu to omoFeba
At Tamino
Shall I seek no more, but
Rise and return;
For droplets from this bloom
Shall soak me I fear.

KKS XVII: 918

When he had gone to Naniwa, he met with rain on Tamino Island and composed this poem:

あめによりたみのの島をけふゆけど名にはかくれぬ物にぞ有りける

ame ni yori
tamino no sima wo
keFu yukedo
na ni Fa kakurenu
mono ni zo arikeru
On account of rain
To Tamino Isle, raincoat clad,
I went today, yet
Naniwa, so well-known, conceals
The place!
