SKKS IX: 857

Composed to accompany a letter sent to someone who had gone down to Michinoku province.


tamaboko no
michi no yama kaze
katamigatera ni
ki nan to zo omou
A jewelled spear,
The road where mountain winds
Blow chill, if so
These keepsake robes
I would that you would wear.

Ki no Tsurayuki
