KKS X: 439

Composed at a Suzakuin maidenflower contest, with one of the syllables of wominaFesi at the beginning of each line:


wogura yama
mine tatinarasi
naku sika no
Fenikemu aki wo
siru Fito zo naki
On Mount Ogura’s
Peak, he is wont to stand:
The belling stag
Has passed many an autumn;
The number? No one can tell.
