秋風の吹きにし日より久方のあまのかはらにたたぬ日はなし

akikaze no
Fukinisi Fi yori
Fisakata no
ama no kaFara ni
tatanu Fi Fa nasi
Autumn winds
Blew and from that day
From the eternal
Bank of heaven’s river
I have not moved once.

きのふこそさなへとりしかいつのまにいなばそよぎて秋風の吹く

kinoFu koso

itu no ma ni
inaba soyogite

Only yesterday
I planted seedlings
So when did
The rice leaves start rustling amid,
The gusting Autumn wind?

KKS IV: 170

Composed on the first day of autumn, when he went on a pleasure trip to the Kamo River with some courtiers.

河風のすずしくもあるかうちよする浪とともにや秋は立つらむ

kaFakaze no
suzusikumo aru
utiyosuru
nami totomoni ya
aki Fa taturan
The river wind
Bears a chill;
With the rushing
Waves, does
Autumn also arise?
