SKKS XVI: 1492

On the showers of early summer, in a hundred poem sequence of reminiscences.


samidare wa
maya no nokiba no
ama sosoki
amari naru made
nururu sode kana
The early summer rain
From the eaves of this hut
Pours in rivulets-
Too much by far, for
My soaking sleeves.

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
