Eikyū hyakushu 251

The Ninth Day of the Ninth Month

をるきくの露にぬれたるけふよりやちとせの秋にあはむとすらん

oru kiku no
tsuyu ni nuretaru
kyō yori ya
chitose no aki ni
awamu to suran
Picked chrysanthemums’
Dew dampens us
Today – will we
For a thousand years of autumns
Decide to meet together?

Higo, from the Residence of the Kyōgoku Regent
京極関白家肥後
