SKKS XVI: 1486

On remembering times long past, when she had served as the Shrine Priestess at Kamo.


sono kami yama no
tabi makura
hono kataraishi
sora zo wasurenu
O, Cuckoo!
When on that holy mount
I briefly laid my head,
Faintly your call came
From the sky–never will I forget it.

Princess Shokushi
