SZS XVI: 1043

In the same reign, when His Majesty’s Gentlemen were drawing topic by lot and presenting poems, he drew ‘fishing boats’ and composed this.


iFa orosu
kata koso nakere
ise no umi no
siFose ni kakaru
ama no turibune
To drop their stones
Is there no place at all,
At the sea off Ise
Caught by the rushing tides are
The seafolk’s fishing boats…

Supernumerary Middle Counsellor Toshitada
