GSIS II: 129

Composed for a picture of peach blossom on a folding screen in the Tenryaku Period (947-957).


ti yo made kazase
momo no Fana
Fana mo kaFarazi
Faru mo taeneba
If you cannot get your fill,
For a thousand years, a garland wear,
Of peach blossom;
For the flowers will not age,
And Spring will be unceasing.

Kiyowara no Motosuke
