Thin at the same time somehow the chrysanthemum in bud yet again yase nagara / wari naki kiku no / tsubomi kana

*

Out there in the world it’s time to harvest the rice I’m in my thatched hut yo no naka wa / ine karu koro ka / kusa no io

*

A banked charcoal fire On the wall the silhouette of my companion uzumibi ya / kabe ni wa kyaku no / kagebōshi

*

Here on a roadway where nobody else travels The autumn evening kono michi ya / yuku hito nashi ni / aki no kure

*

They give off the look of a hundred years the leaves strewn about the lawn momotose no / keshiki o niwa no / ochiba kana
