SKKS VI: 693

Composed on the evening of the year.


yo yo no omokage
yuki ni furinuru
toshi no kure kana
Disappearing into the distance
Are the shapes of times gone by,
Darkness descending with
The falling snow—my age
At the evening of the year.

The Daughter of Master of the Dowager Empress Household Office Toshinari
