KKS VI: 327

Composed at a poetry competition held by Her Majesty, the Empress, during the Kanpyō period.

みよしのの山の白雪ふみわけて入りにし人のおとづれもせぬ

miyosino no
yama no sira yuki
Fumiwakete
irinisi Fito no
otodure mo senu
Through fair Yoshino
Mountain’s white snow fall
Forging,
He entered in,
And not a line returned

Mibu no Tadamine
壬生忠岑
