SKKS IV: 400

On the autumn moon by the sea, for the poetry match held at the Poetry Office on the night of the Fifteenth of the Eighth Month.


wasureji na
naniwa no aki no
yowa no sora
koto’ura ni sumu
tsuki wa miru tomo
Never would I forget
Naniwa’s autumn
Midnight skies, though
Clear above another distant bay
The moon I see…

Gishūmon’in no Tango

A kuzushiji version of the poem's text
