SKKS II: 134

From the Poetry Contest in 1500 Rounds.

さくら色の庭のはる風あともなしとはゞぞ人の雪とだにみん

sakura iro no
niwa no haru kaze
ato mo nashi
towaba zo hito no
yuki to dani min
Upon the palest pink hues
Of my garden, Spring breezes
Leave no mark;
Were you to come a’calling, a singular
Snow is what you’d see.

Fujiwara no Sada’ie
藤原定家
