Kinkai wakashū 60

For a folding screen depicting a large number of travellers lying beneath blossom.


ko no moto ni
yadori wa subeshi
chiramaku oshimi
tabi naranaku ni
Beneath this tree
Let me lodge a while, for
The cherry blossoms’
Scattering I do regret, so
I’ve no cause to journey on my way…
A kuzushiji version of the poem's text.
