SKKS II: 100

A Spring poem from the Poetry Contest in 1500 Rounds.


iku tose no
haru ni kokoro o
aware to omoe
miyoshino no hana
For how many years
Has Spring my heart
Left so exhausted?
Think fondly of me, I beg you,
Blossoms of fair Yoshino.

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office [Fujiwara no] Toshinari
