GSIS V: 364

Composed on autumn leaves when the late Minister of Ceremonial had gone to the River Ōi.


minakami ni
momidi nagarete
murago ni miyuru
taki no siraito
From upstream
Flow the scarlet leaves upon
The River Ōi
Seeming to spatter colour on
The cataracts’ white threads…

The Horikawa Minister of the Right [Fujiwara no Yorimune]
堀川右大臣 [藤原頼宗]
