MYS I: 34

A poem composed by the Kawashima Prince on the occasion of an Imperial visit to the province of Kii.


siranami no
pamamatu ga eda no
iku yo made ni ka
tosi no penuramu
Whitecaps draw near
The pine trees on the beach, branches
Beribboned with travellers’ prayers;
How long a time
Of years has gone by so, I wonder?

Prince Kawashima
