SKKS IV: 293

From the Poetry Contest in 1500 Rounds.


fukakusa no
tsuyu no yosuga wo
chigiri nite
sato o ba karezu
aki wa kinikeri
Deep within the grasses of Fukakusa,
The dewfall links to
Your fate:
No parting from this house-
Autumn has come, I hear.

The Regent and Grand Minister [Fujiwara no Yoshitsune] (1169-1206)
