SZS II: 134

Composed on the spirit of the end of Spring, when he presented a hundred-poem sequence during the reign of Retired Emperor Horikawa.

常よりもけふのくるゝを惜むかな今幾度の春としらねば

tune yori mo
keFu no kururu wo
wosimu kana
ima ikutabi no
Faru to siraneba
More than normal
The dusk today
Is matter for regret;
Now, how many more
Springs will I see?-I know not…

Former Middle Councillor [Ōe no] Masafusa
