Teishi-in ominaeshi uta’awase 10

Left

をみなへしうつろふあきのほどをなみねさへうつしてをしむけふかな

ominaeshi
utsurou aki no
hodo o nami
ne sae utsushite
oshimu kyō kana
The maidenflower
With the autumn will fade
Soon away;
Being shifted here root and all
She must regret, today!

Right

うつらずはふゆともわかじをみなへしときはのえだにさきかへらなむ

utsurazu wa
fuyu to mo wakaji
ominaeshi
tokiwa no eda ni
sakikaeranamu
Ever unfading and
All unknowing of the winter,
O, maidenflower,
On evergreen branches
I would you returned to bloom!
