SKKS VI: 704

Composed on the conception of the evening of the year by the sea, at the residence of the Tsuchimikado Palace Minister.


yuku toshi o
ojima no ama no
kasnete sode ni
nami ya kakuran
The parting year covers me with
Regret, as at Ojima the fisherfolk’s
Drenched robes are
Laid atop each other, with sleeves
Still washed by waves, it seems…

Fujiwara no Ari’ie
