SKKS VI: 664

Sent to [his nephew] the Gotokudaiji Minister of the Left on a snowy morning.


kyō wa moshi
kimi mo ya tou to
mada ato mo naki
niwa no yuki kana
Today, perhaps,
You might come to call,
I wonder, gazing at
The yet undinted
Snow upon my garden.

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
