SKKS XI: 1011

Sent to a woman with whom he had been exchanging letters, when he heard that a superior in the same office had been visiting her.


shirakumo no
mine nishimo nado
onaji mikasa no
yama no fumoto o

Why do they cluster ‘round the peak?
Coming and going
From the selfsame Mikasa
Mountain’s foot…

Fujiwara no Yoshitaka (954-974)
