In the Fourth Month of the First Year of the Ōtoku period (1084) at the Sanjō Palace he composed this on the profusion of leaves on the trees in the garden.
niFa mo Fabiro ni
koya yuFu sidete
kami maturu koro
|The oak trees
In the garden in full fledge
Look! Mulberry streamers flutter
For the gods here now!
