SKKS X: 952

Composed on ‘a storm at night while on a journey’ at the poetry competition at the home of the Regent and Grand Minister.


izuku ni ka
koyoi wa yado o
kari koromo
hi mo yûgure no
mine no arashi ni
Where, indeed,
On this night lodging
Might I find; my hunting robes
Sash tightening; with the evening sun
Storm winds come from the peak.
