KYS I: 7

Sent around the First Day of the First Month, when snow was falling:


aratama no
tosi no Fadime ni
Fatuyuki to koso
When at the jewel-bright, new
Year’s beginning
It falls so heavily,
‘First snow’,
I should call it.

Master of the Office of Palace Repairs [Fujiwara no] Akisue (1055-1123)
