SKKS II: 112

From the Poetry Contest in 1500 Rounds.


kaze kayou
nezame no sode no
hana no ka ni
kaoru makura no
haru no yo no yume
The questing wind
Brings wakefulness to my sleeves,
With the scent of blossom
My fragrant pillow is
A spring night’s dream.

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