SCSS V: 281

A poem from the Poetry Contest held by the Empress Dowager during the reign of the Kanpyō Emperor.


aki no yo no
ama teru tsuki no
hikari ni wa
oku shiratsuyu o
tama to koso mire
On an autumn night
The heaven-shining moon’s
Light upon
The fallen silver dewdrops
Truly, makes them seem as jewels.
