SKKS IV: 305

From when he presented a hundred poem sequence to Retired Emperor Sutoku.


ogi no ha mo
chigiri arite ya
aki kaze no
tsuma to nariken
Are reed fronds too
Bound by former lives?
The Autumn wind
Has come to call:
They must be joined in wedlock!

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household [Fujiwara no] Toshinari (1114-1204)
