MYS VI: 990

A poem on a pine tree in Shigeoka in Atomi, by Ki no Shikahito

茂岡に神さび立ちて栄えたる千代松の木の年の知らなく

sigewoka ni
kamusabi tatite
sakaetaru
tiyo matu no ki no
tosi no siranaku
In Shigeoka
Divinely stands
Flourishing
A pine for a thousand generations
All unknowing of the passing years.

Ki no Shikahito
