SZS I: 32

Composed on the spirit of Spring Rain, when hundred-poem sequences were presented during the reign of Retired Emperor Horikawa (1079-1107; r. 1086-1107).

春雨のふりそめしより片岡の裾野の原ぞあさみどりなる

Farusame no
Furisomesi yori
katawoka no
susono no Fara zo
asamidori naru
Since a spring shower
Started falling,
In Kataoka,
The field of Susono
Has turned the palest green.

Fujiwara no Mototoshi
