SKKS X: 976

A travel poem, included in a hundred poem sequence he composed, lamenting his fate.


yo no naka wa
ukifushi shigeshi
shinohara ya
tabi ni shi areba
imo mo yume miyu
This world of ours
Is lush with misery;
To Shinohara
Am I gone a’travelling, where
I glimpse my darling in my dreams…

Fujiwara no Shunzei
