SIS III: 170

Composed for a folding screen with a picture suited to a month of the year upon it.

あふさかの関のし水に影見えて今やひくらんもち月のこま

aFusaka no
seki no simidu ni
kage miete
ima ya Fikuran
motiduki no koma
In Ausaka
Barrier’s spring waters
Are they reflected;
Is it now they’re taken hence,
The colts of Mochizuki?

Ki no Tsurayuki
