KKS VII: 360

A poem composed for the four seasons screen behind the guest of honour when the Principal Handmaid celebrated the fortieth birthday of the Fujiwara Major Captain of the Right (Autumn):

住の江の松を秋風吹くからにこゑうちそふるおきつ白浪

suminoe no
matu wo aki kaze
Fuku kara ni
kowe utisoFuru
oki tu siranami
At Suminoe
The pines by autumn winds
Are blown, so
Their voices add to
The whitecaps, off the shore.

Mitsune
躬恒
