Composed for the poetry competition held at the residence of the Kokiden Consort in Chōkyū 2 [1141].

戀志なむ命はことの數ならでつれなき人のはてぞゆかしき

koFisinamu
inoti Fa koto no
kazu narade
turenaki Fito no
Fate zo yukasiki
Love
In life is something that
Has no number, but
That cruel one’s
End is what I want!

Eisei

KYS V: 313

Composed on the conception of Felicitation for a poetry competition held by the Kokiden Consort during the reign of Emperor Go-ichijō.

君が代は末の松山はるばるとこす白浪のかずも知られず

kimi ga yo Fa
suwe no matuyama no
Farubaru to
kosu siranami no
kazu mo shirarezu
Your Majesty’s reign:
Upon the pine-clad peak of Sué,
So distant
Break whitecaps
In numbers unknown to all!
