The Weekly Waka

Atsushitomo ihare zarikeri niekaeru
Mizutani tateru shizu wo omoheba (Orinifurete)

Thinking of lowly people standing in a boiling hot paddy field
I hesitate to utter “it’s hot”. (Upon occasion)

editor's note: Thank you Hyakuten Inamoto for translating this Waka by the Meiji Emperor.
