GYS XVI: 2230

Sent when the Hōjōji Lay Priest and Former Regent was in seclusion at the Kiyomizu Temple.


taki no oto mo
ikaga kikuran
miyako dani
mono’aware naru
koro ni mo aru kana
The waterfall’s sound:
Do you hear it, I wonder?
Even in the capital
My heart is moved
At this time, too!

Former Emperor Kazan
