KKS II: 101

A poem from a poetry competition held by Her Majesty, the Empress, during the Kanpyō period.


saku Fana Fa
tigusa nagara ni
ada naredo
tare ka Fa Faru wo
The blossoms bloom
In countless kinds
Most fragile, yet
Who is it that for springtime
Is filling with despite?

Fujiwara no Okikaze
