Composed on the anniversary of the death of the Fukakusa Emperor (Ninmyō (810-850; r. 833-850))


kusa Fukaki
kasumi no tani ni
kage kakusi
teru Fi no kuresi
keFu ni ya Fa aranu
Overgrown with grasses,
Haze fills the valley
Hiding the light
Of the shining sun which set here-
On this day, was it not?

Fun’ya no Yasuhide
