A Hundred Verses from Old Japan (The Hyakunin-isshu), tr. by William N. Porter, , at sacred-texts.com

Will surely follow morn,
Yet, when I'm wakened by the sun,
Turn over, stretch and yawn—
How I detest the dawn!
Michi-nobu lived in the tenth century. He is shown in the illustration with his wife on the verandah, watching the day break.
