Kinkai wakashū 59

For a folding screen depicting a large number of travellers lying beneath blossom.


ima shi wa to
omoishi hodo ni
chiru ko no moto ni
hikazu henubeshi
‘Now, for sure, I’ll—’

Cherry blossom
Scattered from the trees, and beneath,
Without arising, must I pass my time!
A kuzushiji version of the poem's text.
