SZS I: 76

When he was asked to compose a thousand-poem sequence by someone, he composed this as a poem on blossom.


miyosino no
Fana no sakari wo
keFu mireba
kosi no sirane ni
Faru kaze zo Fuku
In fair Yoshino
The blossoms’ bounty
I see today, so
In Koshi on Shirane peak
The spring breezes will be blowing.

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office [Fujiwara no] Toshinari
