1.

 

 

有明の月むかふるは妙雲の間にひかへます鳥海の峰

 

awaiting in

a beauteous white cloud―

the summit of

Mt. Chokai does meet

the moon at daybreak

 

2.

 

 

刻々と秋は近きか早緑のやさしき棘の毬栗なづる 

 

moment by moment

autumn is coming

I touch

the soft thorn,

yellow-green chestnut

 

3.

 

朝日照り羊歯の葉末の露無きに残暑にうだる一日をおもふ

 

because

there is no dew on fern’s leaves

in the morning sun

I think of a day sweltering

in the lingering heat

 

4.

 

 

めくるめく草生の蜘蛛は銀糸はり木末(こぬれ)の陰に光呼びたり

 

dazzling…

spiders in bushes weaving

gossamer threads

call for the sparkling sun-rays

behind the branches

 

5.

 

 

秋雷はにはか轟き風をよぶ気のあやしきが家路は遠し

 

unexpectedly

autumn thunder arrives

and invites the wind…

worrying about unstable air

my way is long to home

 

6.

 

 

ねむられぬ一夜はあけて露ふかき稲穂にすだくこおろぎの歌

 

after

passing a wakeful night…

crickets gathering

in the rice field with deep dew

sing songs before harvest

 

7.

 

 

秋虫は二音四音に玲玲と響きつくして季(とき)の和音かな

 

autumn insects make

a seasonal chord with two

and four beats

playing the sound of ring-ring

all the way through in tune

 

8.

 

 

秋虫の二音四音つくす和の韻のはざまに入る我が心

 

my heart slips

between the chords made

by autumn insects

with two and four refrain-beats

ring-ring in tune

 

9.

 

長月になほも続きし山里のフェーン現象けふに退くるか

 

Foehn phenomena

continuing even in September

probably recede

from the areas at the foot

of mountains, today

 

10.

 

 

白玉の露のこぼるる草生なか季(とき)にうつらふ月草のかげ

 

in the dense grass

crystal white dew glistens

dripping by dripping…

a silhouette of spiderwort

wavers in transient time
