SKKS IV: 307

At a time when everyone was composing poems from topics picked at random, he composed this on ‘the autumn wind in the forest at Shinoda’.


hi wo hetsutsu
oto koso masare
izumi naru
shinoda no mori no
chie no aki kaze
As the days go by
The sound grows ever greater
At Izumi
In the forest of Shinoda
A thousand branches rustle in the autumn wind.

Fujiwara no Tsunehira
