SZS XV: 915

Composed on the conception of Love at a poetry competition held at the residence of Middle Councillor Kuninobu.

人ごころ何を頼みて水無瀬川堰の古杭朽ち果てぬらん

Fitogokoro
nani wo tanomite
minasegaFa
sese no FuruguFi
kutiFatenuran
In your heart
How can I place my trust?
For as Minase River’s
Fishing weir’s ancient stakes
Has it rotted all away…

Fujiwara no Mototoshi
