SKKS I: 10

Composed on the conception of lingering snow, for the Hundred Poem Sequences Commemorating the Reign of Former Emperor Horikawa.

かすがのゝしたもえわたるくさのうへにつれなくみゆる春のあは雪

kasugano no
shitamoewataru
kusa no ue ni
tsurenaku miyuru
haru no awayuki
On the plain at Kasuga
Sprouting freshly everywhere are
Grasses, but atop them
Heartlessly, I see
The foamy snow of spring!

Provisional Middle Councillor Kunizane
