MYS VI: 1001

In spring, the Third Month: a poem composed on an imperial visit to the Naniwa Palace.


masurawo pa
mikari ni tatasi
wotomera pa
aka mo susobiku
kiyoki pamabï wo
The sturdy men
Leave for the hunt;
The maidens
Trail the hems of scarlet skirts
Across the clean swept beach.

The above poem is by Akahito, Lord Yamabe.
