KKS XIX: 1067

Composed on the topic of monkeys howling from the mountain passes on a day when the Cloistered Emperor had gone to the Western River.

わびしらにましらな鳴きそ足引きの山のかひある今日にやはあらぬ

wabisira ni
masira na naki so
asiFiki no
yama no kaFi aru
keFu ni ya wa aranu
So sadly,
O Monkeys, howl not!
Leg-wearying
The mountain valleys are, yet
Today, there is no point!

Mitsune
