GSIS III: 189

Composed at the poetry competition held at the residence of imperial princess Sukeko (Yūshi) on 5th day of the Sixth Month Eishō 5 (1051).

夜だにあけば尋ねてきかむ郭公信太の杜の方になくなり

yo dani akeba
tadunete kitamu
Fototogisu
sinoda no mori no
kata ni nakunari
With the simple break of dawn
Do they come to call:
The cuckoos
In Shinoda’s sacred grove
Do sing.

Nōin

Tentoku 4 Dairi uta’awase 30-31

Left.

夏草のなかを露けみかき分けて刈る人なしにしげる野辺かな

natu kusa no
naka o tuyukemi
kakiwakete
karu Fito nasi ni
sigeru nobe kana
The summer grasses
Midst is dew-drenched;
Forging through,
With no one to reap them
This meadow is lush, indeed!

Tadami

Right.

夏ふかくなりぞしにけるおほあらきの杜の下草なべて人かる

natu Fukaku
nari zo sinikeru
oFoaraki no
mori no sitagusa
nabete Fito karu
Deep within the summer
It is now:
At Ōaraki
In the sacred groves, the undergrowth
Is arrayed for men to reap it!
