Japanese anyone?

I have a woodblock print by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (aka Taiso Yoshitoshi (1839-1892) which shows "a street-walker under the veiled full moon" from the series TSUKI HYAKU SUGATA (One hundred figures of the moon) published 1890). I wonder if anyone can translate the Japanese inscription.

It is the title of the print: Like a reflection in the rice-paddies the face of a streetwalker in the darkness is exposed by the light of the autumn moon. Hitotose. (田毎ある中にもつらき辻君のかほさらしなや運の月かけ 一とせ). And on the right the title of the series 月百姿.

Gosh - many thanks for your speedy response. I've always wondered what it was. Btw. I have posted the complete picture under "The Art Thread".
