SKKS I: 45

When he presented a hundred poem sequence.

むめがゝにむかしをとへば春の月こたへぬかげぞ袖にうつれる

mume ga ka ni
mukashi o toeba
haru no tsuki
kotaenu kage zo
sode ni utsureru
In the scent of plum
Lie unanswered questions from long ago-
The Spring moon
Makes no response as its light
Shines on my sleeves.

Fujiwara no Ietaka
藤原家隆
