KYS IV: 258

Composed on drizzle, for a notebook match held at the residence of Fujiwara no Chikako, Junior Second Rank.

しぐれつつかつちるやまのもみぢ葉をいかにふくよのあらしなるらん

siguretutu
katu tiru yama no
momidiba wo
ika ni fuku yo no
arashi naruran
Constant drizzle falls
All over the mountain’s scattered
Scarlet leaves, so
It may as well blow through the world:
The storming wind!

Master of the Palace Repairs Office Akisue

GSIS XVIII: 1063

Composed on the instructions of His Majesty, on the way back from Sumiyoshi, when he had accompanied him there in the Third Month, Enkyū 5 [April 1073].

おきつかぜふきにけらしな住吉の松のしづえをあらふしらなみ

arau shiranami
The wind in the offing
Is gusting, it seems, for
At Sumiyoshi
The pines’ low branches
Are washed by whitecaps.

GYS XV: 2180

On wind, from among His Former Majesty’s Miscellaneous poems.

ひびきくる松のうれより吹きおちて草にこゑやむ山の下風

hibikikuru
matsu no ure yori

kusa ni koe yamu
yama no shitakaze
Echoes come
From the pine-branch tips, as
Gusting down and
Losing its voice among the grass
Is the wind from off the mountains

Where he does sing.
