GYS XV: 2180

On wind, from among His Former Majesty’s Miscellaneous poems.

ひびきくる松のうれより吹きおちて草にこゑやむ山の下風

hibikikuru
matsu no ure yori
fuki’ochite
kusa ni koe yamu
yama no shitakaze
Echoes come
From the pine-branch tips, as
Gusting down and
Losing its voice among the grass
Is the wind from off the mountains

His Former Majesty [Fushimi]

FGS XVI: 1738

From among his miscellaneous poems.

くれぬるかまがきの竹のむらすずめねぐらあらそふ声さわぐなり

kurenuru ka
magaki no take no
murasuzume
negura arasou
koe sawagunari
Is it dusk?
Along the bamboo of my lattice fence
A flock of sparrows
Quarrelling over roosts
Is chirping noisily, indeed!

The Jōmyōji Minister of the Left

The Middle of Autumn

Left (Tie)

くもゐよりてりやまさるときよたきのそこにてもみむあきのつきかげ

kumoi yori
teri ya masaru to
kiyotaki no
soko nite mo mimu
aki no tsukikage
From the clouds
Does it shine most bright?
On Kiyotaki’s
Riverbed I see
Autumn moonlight.

Right

人しれぬねをやなくらんあきはぎのはなさくまでにしかのこゑせぬ

hito shirenu
ne o ya nakuran
aki hagi no
hana saku made ni
shika no koe senu
That no one may know
Quietly, does he cry?
Until the autumn bush clover
Blooms flower
The stag’s bell stays silent.

The End of Summer

Left

なくこゑはするものからに身はむなしあなおぼつかなうつせみのよや

naku koe wa
suru mono kara ni
mi wa munashi
ana obotsukana
utsusemi no yo ya
Their voices sing
And yet
Their flesh is empty—
O, how strange is
A cicada shell world!

ほととぎすをちかへりなけうなゐこがうちたれがみのさみだれのこゑ

hototogisu
ochikaeri nake
unaiko ga
uchitaregami no
samidare no koe
A cuckoo
Calls again and again;
A child’s shoulder-brushing
Hair dangling down:
The song of a summer shower.
