SKKS XVI: 1436

On the spirit of the beginning of spring, when he composed a hundred poem sequence at the house of the Lay Priest and Former Regent and Grand Minister.

としくれしなみだのつらゝとけにけりこけの袖にも春やたつらん

toshi kureshi
namida no tsurara
tokenikeri
koke no sode ni mo
haru ya tatsuran
The year is done-
Frozen tears
Have melted;
Even to moss-covered sleeves
Does spring come, I wonder?

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
