いまこむと いひしばかりに 長月の 有明の月 待ち出(い)でつるかな
While I was waiting for him to come
As he said he would immediately,
To see the moon of Ariake rise I have come
During the long night of September earnestly
Seen beautifully but lamentably..

While I was waiting for him to come, as he said he would immediately, I have come to see the moon of Ariake rise, during long night of September.
