Ogura hyakunin isshu (小倉百人一首) Kakinomoto no HitomaroOh, the foot drawn trailOf the mountain pheasant s tailDrooped like down curved branch Through this long, long dragging nightMust I lie in bed alone Ono no KomachiColor of the flowerHas already faded away,While in idle thoughtsMy life passes vainly by,As I watch the long rains fall Minamoto no ToruLike Michinoku printsOf the tangled leaves of ferns,It is because of youThat I have become confused But my love for you remains Ariwara no YukihiraThough we are parted,If on Mount Inaba s peakI should hear the soundOf the pine trees growing there,I ll come back again to you Mibu no TadamineLike the morning moon,Cold, unpitying was my love.And since we parted,I dislike nothing so muchAs the breaking light of day Fujiwara no OkikazeWho is still aliveWhen I have grown so oldThat I can call my friends Even Takasago s pines No longer offer comfort Minamoto no HitoshiBamboo growingAmong the tangled reedsLike my hidden love But it is too much to bearThat I still love her so Sone no YoshitadaLike a marinerSailing over Yura s straitWith his rudder gone Where, over the deep of love,The end lies, I do not know Fujiwara no MichimasaIs there any wayExcept by a messengerTo send these words to you If I could, I d come to youTo say goodbye forever Oe no MasafusaOn that far mountainOn the slope below the peakCherries are in flower.Oh,

flows and flows So long, like this nightIf I m to sleep alone The vibrant flower sFace has faded While I gaze in vainAs the world grows oldAnd the long rain falls When looking at the moonA thousand thingsBecome sadness In the 13th century CE, a nobleman named Teika of the Fujiwara clan compiled an anthology of 100 poems, each by a different poet, the Hyakunin Isshu This volume wasn t unique, but as Larry Hammer notes in his foreward, this particular collection has become so famous over the years that any time someone refers to the Hyakunin Isshu, they mean this one Anyone who has watched much anime may have seen a memory card game called karuta being played on New Year s Day That card game is based on this compilation, which shows just how well the anthology has survived in Japan s popular culture down to the modern age.Among the nobility, poems were than entertainment or expression, but a very important form of communication Lovers would write poems to their intendeds and they answer in the same manner Poems were written to flatter, to ask for favors, to defend oneself against slanders, to reminisce, to or less gently turn aside unwelcome attentions, or pretty much any communication that required taste, propriety and delicacy I m no poet, nor do I pretend to grasp the esthetics of traditional Japanese poetry waka whi The back of this elegant little booklet saysAround 1235, Japanese poet and scholar Fujiwara no Teika compiled for his son s father in law a collection of 100 poems by 100 poets.Within its chronological summary of six centuries of Japanese literature, Teika arranged a poetic conversation that ebbs and flows through a variety of subjects and styles The collection became the exemplar of the genre a mini manual of classical poetry, taught in the standard school curriculum and used in a memory card game still played during New Year s.Larry Hammer, the translator, not only gives alternate meanings for phrases, but he furnishes clues to meanings otherwise hidden to the Westerner ignorant of the subtleties of the various styles through these six centuries of Japanese history.Here s one that I liked 80 Empress Haiken s Horikawa Whether his feelingswill also last, I don t know, and my black hair isdisordered as, this morning, my thoughts certainly are.The image of the lover with long, ruffled hair is so evocative and romantic About it, Hammer says, An attendant of the imperial court.the origin of the use name Horikawa moat river is uknown, but it seems unrelated to the earlier emperor of that name Again, the mono thought about is clearly the other person.How about this one 92 Sanuki My sleeve is likea roc This anthology is a testimony of the universality of poetry The collection spans six hundred years and was written by one hundred different poets from a wide range of professions yet, there is a cohesion and unity to the anthology The poems are arranged chronologically, from the first poem composed in the seventh century to the last poems composed during the thirteenth century As a reader who is a product of Western civilization and who lives in the 21st century, I was nevertheless moved by the poems, which originate in an ancient and vastly different culture than mine The anthology is a collection of one hundred poems by one hundred Japanese poets the compilation was made in the thirteenth century That alone makes this collection of poems a fascinating read The second reason that drew me to this collection is that the poems are very well known in Japan and many of the poems are memorized by the Japanese The poems capture a snapshot of time and emotion, covering chirping crickets, cold autumn winds, and snow covered mountains, to the despair of unrequited love, the anticipation of death, and the wistful reflections of old age What I love about Japanese poetry in general is the sense of a momentary glimpse of eternity it conveys There are moments in our lives when we stop to see the silver moon, or listen to the song of an oriel, or watch an autumn leaf tumble I won this book through Goodreads and I must say I quite enjoy it Blue Flute s One Hundred Leaves starts with a brief introduction to Japanese poetry and explains how this volume came to be This introduction, though sparse, is informative and prepares you to better understand Japanese poetry Next come the actual poems Each one is presented first in English, then we get the Japanese Kanji and a transliteration It is interesting to see where the poems came from and I find the characters beautiful as well Lastly, there are literary notes that help with the interpretation of the poem These literary notes come in very handy They provide better understanding of the circumstances surrounding the poem really help in appreciating them.Each poem has an accompanying piece of artwork that depicts its theme They are wonderfully matched, some combinations seeming as though one was made for the other Unfortunately, the artwork is also where we hit the first real drawback the art is not named, the artist is not mentioned The book is not in color, and I would like to look up full color versions That s made very hard, though, when I don t have a name to search with The fact that the book is in black and white in the first place is unfortunate, but I knew that it would be and I can forgive that As for the actual poetry, I can flip to any page and find an interesti Nice rendition for a novice reader of Japanese poetry Educational about the history of the Hyakunin Isshu without being pretentious Each page consists of a beautiful Japanese portrait on the left page and the text on the right page The art is wonderfully enhanced, although the book would have been nicer in color The text on each right page was laid out in a diamond pattern At the top was the title followed by the author s English translation Centered left was the original Japanese calligraphy and centered right was the phonetic pronunciation of the Japanese This was a particularly nice touch after reading about the poems meter of 5 7 5 7 7, but not seeing that in the English Saying it in Japanese added a layer of beauty I would have otherwise missed.At the bottom was the notes pertaining to the translation, many times demonsrating how difficult literal translations can be, when a single symbol can have multiple meanings.I was not happy with the interpretations of only some of the poems
