Composed when he was asked by people in the capital what the moon had been like, when he had returned there, after going to Akashi to gaze upon it, at a time when it was particularly bright.
tuki mo akasi no
nami bakari koso
yoru to miesika
Moon’s brightness, with Akashi’s
Simply with the waves
Did seem to draw near with the night…
Taira no Tadamori
