SZS XX: 1264

Composed in the conception of the moon over a shrine, at the same poetry competition.


matu mono iFaba
mukasi mo kaku ya
sumi no e no tuki
The ancient
Pines-if only they could speak!
For I would ask,
Of old was it as bright:
The moon on Sumiyoshi Bay?

The Minister of the Right [Fujiwara no Sanesada]
