SKKS I: 63

In a fifty-poem sequence for Priest-Prince Shukaku

しもまよふそらにしほれしかりがねのかへるつばさに春雨ぞふる

shimo mayou
sora ni shioreshi
kari ga ne no
kaeru tsubasa ni
harusame zo furu
Wracked by frosts,
The skies, where drenched
The geese, calling,
Homeward bound, wingbeats
Stirring Spring rains’ fall.

Fujiwara no Sada’ie
藤原定家
