SKKS XX: 1968

On the sound of waves at dawn, as they near the Coast of Gold in Paradise.


inishie no
onoe no kane ni
nitaru kana
kishi utsu nami no
akatsuki no koe
In times long gone
Tolled the bell of Onoe
Similar, I think, to
Waves breaking upon the shore,
The sound coming with the dawn.

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
