SKKS II: 102

Composed on the spirit of desiring mountain blossoms, when he was Great Minister of the Centre.

白雲のたなびく山のやま桜いづれを花とゆきておらまし

shirayuki no
tanabiku yama no
yamazakura
izure o hana to
yukite oramashi
Snow, white,
Trails across the mountain’s
Cherries;
Knowing which are blossom
I would go, and pluck them.

The Former Kyōgoku Regent and Prime Minister [Fujiwara no Morozane (1042-1101)]
