The Autumn Mountains - Poem by Ki no Tsurayuki

The Autumn mountains
Weave Autumn leaves
For offerings, so
Even I, living here,
Feel the urge to travel.

    秋の山紅葉をぬさとたむくればすむ我さへぞたび心ちする

    aki no yama
    momidi wo nusa to
    tamukereba
    sumu ware saFe zo
    tabi kokoti suru

    The Autumn mountains
    Weave Autumn leaves
    For offerings, so
    Even I, living here,
    Feel the urge to travel
