SKKS XVI: 1436

On the concpetion 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.


toshi kureshi
namida no tsurara
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
