GYS VII: 1093

A poem inscribed in cursive script on a lacquerware box from when he was absorbed in compiling the Collection of a Thousand Years.


waka no ura ni
chiji no tamamo o
yorozuyo made mo
kimi ga min tame
In the Bay of Waka
Countless gemweeds
Have I raked together that
For ten thousand generations
My Lord may gaze upon them!

Master of the Dowager Empress’ Household Office Toshinari
