SZS VIII: 531

Composed as a travel poem, when the Regent and Former Minister of the Right had a hundred poem sequence composed at his residence.

あはれなる野しまかさきのいほりかな露おく袖に浪もかけけり

awarenaru
nojima ga saki no
iori kana
tsuyu oku sode ni
nami mo kakekeri
Mournful
Nojima Point is where
My hut lies;
Upon my dew-dropped sleeves
Have rushed the waves…

Master of the Dowager Empress Household Office, Toshinari
