MYS I: 54

A poem composed on the occasion of a vist to the province of Kii by His Majesty, the Retired Emperor, in the first year of Taihō (701).


koseyama no
turatura tubaki
turatura ni
mitutu sinopana
kose no paruno wo
Upon Mount Kose
All aligned are the camelias:
Gazing at them let us recall
The meadows of Kose in springtime!

Sakato no Hitotari
