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

The autumn winds blow drear;
The villagers are beating cloth,
Their merry din I hear,
This night so cold and clear.
Masatsune was a son of the writer of verse No. 83; he died in the year 1221. He appears in the illustration sitting alone in his house, listening to the sound of the villagers beating the cloth to make it supple.
