SKS VII: 211

Composed to be presented as part of a hundred poem sequence, when former Emperor Reizei was Crown Prince.

風をいたみ岩うつ波の己のみくだけてものを思ふ頃かな

kaze wo itami
iFa utu nami no
onore nomi
kudakete mono wo
omoFu koro kana
The howling winds
Strike waves against the crags;
I alone,
Am shattered, gloom
Filling my thoughts these days…

Minamoto no Shigeyuki
源重之
