Izumi shikibu-shū 193

On plucking the zither, playing the flute, and enjoying herself somewhere.


kiku hito no
mimi sae samuku
akikaze ni
fue no koe kana
The folk listening
Have even had their ear chilled
By the autumn breeze
Blowing to them together with
The flute’s notes!

Izumi Shikibu (?-976?)
