SKKS X: 933

A travel poem for a fifty poem sequence composed for the Monk-Prince Shukaku.


tachi kaeri
mata mo kite min
matsushima ya
ojima no tomaya
nami ni arasu na
Rising, falling, leaving, departing
To come once again to see
In Matsushima,
Ojima where my hut-
I would not have the wave wash it away.

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
