SKKS XIX: 1898

In the conception of the gods, when composing in a hundred poem sequence at the house of the Lay Priest and Former Regent and Grand Minister.


kasuga no no
odoro no michi no
mumore mizu
sue dani kami no
shirushi arawase
Lost under Kasuga Fields’
Overgrown trails are
Hidden waters–as am I, yet
To my posterity at least may the Gods
Give blessing.

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
