SZS IV: 256

Composed when a hundred poem sequence was presented to His Majesty, during the reign of Former Emperor Horikawa.

さまざまに心ぞとまる宮城野の花のいろいろ虫の声ごゑ

samazama ni
kokoro zo tomaru
miyagino no
Fana no iroiro
musi no kowegowe
So many things
Do rest within my heart:
On Miyagi plain
The multicoloured blossom and
The insects’ songs.

Minamoto no Toshiyori
源俊頼

This poem is also Horikawa hyakushu 1400.

SZS IV: 249

Topic unknown.

宮城野の萩や雄鹿の妻ならん花咲きしより声の色なる

miyagino no
Fagi ya wosika no
tuma naran
Fana sakisi yori
kowe no iro naru
On Miyagi plain
Has the bush clover the stag’s
Bride become?
For since the blossom bloomed
His cry takes on its passionate hue.

Fujiwara no Mototoshi
藤原基俊
