KKS XII: 564

A poem composed at a competition held by Her Majesty, the Empress during the Kampyō era (889-898).


wa ga yado no
kiku no kakine ni
woku simo no
kiekaFerite zo
At my house
On chrysanthemums by the fence
The frost settles only to
Vanish and return again;
Even so is my love.

Ki no Tomonori
